Summary: JD Journal has identified the best IP Litigation boutiques in Silicon Valley.

Note: These are BCG Attorney Search’s favorite IP litigation boutiques in Silicon Valley.


Silicon Valley is home to tech giants Facebook and Google; and it’s also a hub for startups, entrepreneurs, and investors looking to get rich and change the world. With technology being big business, the protection of ideas is important in the area. For instance, a piece of code can result in a product or company being worth multi-millions of dollars, and former employers or employees aren’t afraid to fight for their piece of the pie. Just ask Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. He has already been ordered by the courts to give away millions to plaintiffs such as the Winklevoss Twins and now ZeniMax Media in intellectual property lawsuits.

Tech’s reliance on the protection of originality and innovation means that Intellectual Property Litigation is a hot practice area in Silicon Valley. Because of this, JD Journal has compiled a list of the Top IP Litigation firms in the affluent area, and the law firms are ranked below by size.

The top three law firms on the list–Alston & Bird, Faegre Baker, and Fish & Richardson–have hundreds of attorneys and multiple offices in the United States. Alston & Bird has an impressive 800 attorneys ready to work for their clients, and they have 90 Intellectual Property Litigators who have worked on cases in 45 states. Following Alston & Bird, Faegre Baker has a total of 750 attorneys and Fish & Richardson has 400.

The rest of the list includes Intellectual Property Litigation boutiques with offices in Silicon Valley. Knobbe, Martens, Olson & Bear, LLP is the biggest boutique on the list. They have 300 attorneys, who all focus on some aspect of intellectual property, which includes trade secret and trademark litigation.

With 36 attorneys, Osha Liang is a smaller boutique compared to Knobbe Martens; but it has international and national clients who benefit from their unique Patent Agent program which recruits attorneys fresh out of the tech industry or who have some kind of technology-focused higher education.

Carr & Ferrell and Durie Tangri have 25 and 23 attorneys, respectively. Both firms use their technical expertise and location to work tirelessly for their Silicon Valley clients.

The last boutiques on the list Montgomery & Hansen; Feinberg Day; Alberti & Thompson LLP; Silicon Valley Law Group; North Weber & Baugh; Fountainhead Intellectual Property Group; and Taylor & Company Law Offices LLP have less than 15 attorneys. Each law firm promises clients exceptional service and skilled litigation.
