An integral part of the fabric of the tech economy, our Palo Alto headquarters thrums with opportunity.

In the heart of Silicon Valley (and founded before it was even called “Silicon Valley”), Wilson Sonsini’s Palo Alto office is our largest and serves as the firm’s headquarters. This is the center of gravity where our industry-leading teams have written our history alongside clients we have had relationships with for many decades. This history also acts as a blueprint as we continue to form new relationships with technology and life sciences companies every day, helping them shape the future of our world.

Palo Alto also serves as the home base for our Summer Associate Academy, a week-long program filled with training and networking opportunities for our entire summer class. Each year, 35 to 40 summer associates are invited to join our Palo Alto teams.
