Winston & Strawn’s San Francisco office is home to more than 40 attorneys and professional staff. Located in the center of the city’s financial district, the office provides stunning views from the Golden Gate Bridge to the rolling hills of the East Bay. With Silicon Valley just down the road and the city’s technology industry growing, our San Francisco office sits at the heart of California’s high-tech corridor.
Created as a result of the firm’s 2003 merger with Murphy Sheneman Julian & Rogers, our San Francisco office opened with a notable team of restructuring, corporate lending, private equity, and commercial litigation attorneys. Over the past decade, we have quickly grown our Bay Area presence to offer services to clients in a number of other areas, including the energy and financial services sectors, and experience in antitrust, white collar defense, intellectual property, state and local tax controversy, and labor and employment. Our strong litigation practice recently expanded to include capabilities to assist clients on compliance and enforcement matters arising under the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other countries’ anti-bribery laws.
With a culture that represents the Bay Area’s innovative spirit, our attorneys are regularly honored with high-profile awards and frequently recognized by publications, such as Chambers USA, The American Lawyer, the Daily Journal, and The Recorder.
The entrepreneurial spirit we cultivate influences our office culture. This is reflected in the our Volunteer@Winston Community Service Program. Both attorneys and professional staff work side-by-side on community initiatives such as: the United Way of the Bay Area’s Koko Challenge, the Bar Association of San Francisco’s Food From The Bar campaign, and GRID Alternatives, which installs solar power systems to families in need to help them conserve energy and save money.
