What do you get when you combine an international business destination, a thriving entrepreneurial community, and a growing investor base? An unbeatable place to build your legal skills and book of business. 

Wilson Sonsini’s substantial Los Angeles practice has led the firm to establish two office locations: Downtown and Century City. Wilson Sonsini lawyers in Los Angeles share one culture across two locations.  While everyone is formally assigned to one office, many of our Los Angeles lawyers spend time in both locations—some occasionally and others more regularly.

Founded in 2013, our Downtown office sits in the heart of the Los Angeles legal scene, near many other law firms and the US Courthouse. Our clients come from both innovative and established industries, including digital media and entertainment, life sciences, gaming, internet services, mobile, and retail and consumer products and services. 

Joining the Los Angeles offices in litigation means joining an exciting and growing team that is committed to bringing high-stakes and high-profile disputes (such as the 2022 Vanessa Bryant case) to trial. You’ll work with premier litigators who commit to small teams and close mentoring, and to work directly with clients and have early responsibility. Our Los Angeles team also features attorneys who represent both public and private companies in a variety of corporate and securities transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, equity and debt financings, and joint ventures.

We ask our summer associates to spend time in both offices so that they can connect with all of our attorneys and other professionals in both neighborhoods. Between our Los Angeles offices, the firm usually brings in two to five summer associates each year, focusing on our complex litigation and patent litigation practices.
