Orange County

One of the nation’s largest counties by population and the site of one of Haynes and Boone’s newest office locations, Orange County boasts 42 miles of coastline surrounded by wide beaches, rocky cliffs and sandy coves. Popularly known as "The OC," rising to recent fame in California’s entertainment industry, Orange County is first and foremost a center of industry. The thriving economic community is home to a wide array of businesses, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to emerging technology ventures.

Catering to the needs of California’s premier technology industries and taking advantage of the West Coast’s global access, Haynes and Boone’s Orange County office has a strong focus on intellectual property, technology transactions, corporate and litigation services.

Our expansion into California heightens Haynes and Boone’s coast-to-coast capabilities while offering clients, particularly those doing business in California and Asia, the benefits of our expanded geographic base. Most of our California-based lawyers have earned engineering or technical degrees in addition to law degrees, enhancing their understanding of the intricacies of intellectual property.

With full-time IP lawyers nationwide, Haynes and Boone’s Orange County and Silicon Valley offices are backed by the full resources of the firm. Multidisciplinary teams are available to address the opportunities California offers for many of our clients in intellectual property as well as areas including in-bound Asian work, venture-funded corporate matters, and big-ticket litigation such as patent, securities, insurance coverage, and class action labor and employment matters.
