Office Description

The San Francisco office has grown to more than 100 attorneys since its founding in 1981, now the third largest of Sheppard Mullin’s 15 global offices. Our lawyers are thought leaders, with 19 ranked by Legal 500 US, 20 in Best Lawyers in America and 15 as Northern California Super Lawyers. The firm was recently recognized by Law360 as a California Powerhouse, with several San Francisco victories and deals contributing to this honor.

The office provides a full range of services to our clients across industries, both those headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley, and in other locations around the globe. Our San Francisco attorneys focus primarily on: Antitrust and Competition; Corporate and Securities; Environmental; Finance and Bankruptcy; Intellectual Property; International Arbitration; Labor and Employment; Litigation; Privacy and Cybersecurity; and Real Estate, Land Use and Natural Resources.

We are proud of our diversity and inclusion programs and have received numerous awards and recognitions, including being named a “Best Law Firms for Women” by Working Mother and a “Top Firm for Diversity” by America Lawyer. We also have a long tradition of service to the community including acting as outside counsel to San Francisco PRIDE (and proudly marching annually in the parade), providing pro bono services at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area clinic, sponsoring students in the SMART program (an eight-year program providing low-income SF students access to an exceptional education to thrive in college) and “adopting” Head Start children each year to provide holiday gifts.
