SV Legal Market - State of the Market?

Postby bree » Thu Mar 17, 2011 11:22 am

What are things like in the SV legal market?

It's been 10-11 years since the dotcom era and more recently there have been a fair numbers of layoffs during the financial crisis. Plus, we've seen two different SF Bay Area based firms failing (Heller, Brobeck) after each crisis. Also, Howrey (~100 attorneys btwn SV and SF) recently dissolved.

What's it like now? What practices are doing well? What practices are struggling? (IP? Corporate? M&A? Venture Capital?)

What firms are doing well? What firms are struggling? (Wilson/Fenwick/Cooley/Latham/Orrick/DPW/Gunderson)

Thanks!

Nevertheless, would appreciate any comments from current associates if possible ...
