  • "They are among the best in practicality and substantive expertise for technology companies."
  • "We get clear answers … [t]hey provide business-minded advice."
  • "In complicated litigation you want lawyers who will devote their time to understand the business issues behind legal issues. That is where they excel and take time to listen. It is the most important skill a lawyer can bring to the table."
  • "[Fenwick is] an outstanding firm with tremendous range. They scale very, very well across deal sizes and types and are just as good on a middle-market deal as a large strategic one."
  • “The [IP] team that I've been working with has both the technical expertise and the access to talent breadth, which is crucial as we expand our business in broader technical areas."
