California’s economy is the 8th largest in the world and has produced the largest population of ultra high net worth individuals in the US, many of whom live in San Francisco and nearby Silicon Valley.
San Francisco itself is one of the most culturally diverse and thriving commercial centers in the world. The city hosts many successful entrepreneurs and flourishing Internet companies and is truly a melting pot, with 39% of its residents born overseas. With over 30 international financial institutions, seven Fortune 500 companies and a large support infrastructure of professional services, San Francisco ranks as one of the world’s top producing cities and global financial centers.
Our lawyers based in San Francisco and our other California locations work closely with our other US and international offices to provide integrated, real-time advice to meet the complex and diverse needs of California clients.
