International law firm, Osborne Clarke is expanding its presence on the West Coast with the launch of a new office in San Francisco's SoMa neighborhood. The SoMa office will be based in the heart of the burgeoning technology ecosystem enabling the firm to establish closer ties with its existing client base and further extend its network within the tech community.

The launch of our SoMa office reflects the firm's sustained commitment to the US market as well as the growth we've seen within the tech sector in San Francisco

Since launching its Palo Alto based Silicon Valley office in 2001, Osborne Clarke has been guiding leading US technology companies on their growth into and across the European market.

The firm's leading inward investment team has advised hundreds of fast-growing companies as well as established global businesses on their initial European launch and has a strong track record supporting those businesses on all their legal needs throughout the EU.

Steve Wilson, Partner and Osborne Clarke's Head of Silicon Valley and SoMa offices:

"The launch of our SoMa office reflects the firm's sustained commitment to the US market as well as the growth we've seen within the tech sector in San Francisco."

"The emergence of the SoMa market means we now have two distinct markets to support, one in Silicon Valley and now in San Francisco. The new office allows us to add greater value to our ever expanding client base."

"We have a really unique model with our UK and European lawyers permanently based in Palo Alto and San Francisco. We provide real time European advice within the Pacific time-zone and give our clients access to specialized advisors across the wider firm."

The new SoMa office will be overseen by Steve Wilson and permanently staffed by Osborne Clarke's leading European legal advisors from which they will serve the growing San Francisco market.
