Santa Monica

Our Santa Monica office is the hub for Orrick’s tech companies work in Southern California.

We are a local team with a global reach. Our team brings to Silicon Beach the experience, resources and connections of Orrick’s global Technology Companies Group: a portfolio of more than 1,800 emerging company clients, as well as relationships with leading venture capital firms, incubators and investment banks. Last year alone, we helped these clients raise more than $12.4 billion in more than 650 venture financings in 30 countries worldwide. We have been ranked in the top 3 for venture capital globally for five quarters in a row (PitchBook).

Our Santa Monica team supports our tech companies at all stages of the company life cycle. We deliver innovator-friendly advice on company formations, founder equity and liquidity, debt and equity financings, and acquisitions, as well as IP licensing and protection, employee compensation, data privacy and cybersecurity.

We are a full-service team that works closely with Orrick’s Los Angeles and Orange County offices, which offer market-leading IP and commercial litigation advice to our high-growth clients. 

We help to connect the Santa Monica and L.A. tech community through our Total Access program and our collaboration with local incubators and venture funds.
