Austin - McDermott Will & Emery



As one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States, Austin has become a strategic location for corporations of all sizes: The city’s “Silicon Hills” rivals Silicon Valley as a leading hub for start-up tech companies, and more corporate headquarters are relocating to Austin than any other Texas city. Our team in Austin is well equipped to support your business interests in the local market and around the world.

With strong intellectual property (IP) litigation and IP transactional capabilities, along with a growing presence and visibility in key patent forums such as the Western District of Texas, we represent a variety of companies across many industries, including high-tech, telecommunication, healthcare and digital health, and life sciences. To help you achieve your objectives, we collaborate closely with our top-ranked practice groups in private equity, private client, health, venture capital and emerging markets, and real estate, including colleagues in other offices—particularly Boston, New York and northern California.

Our Austin team members have been recognized for legal skill and client service excellence with awards and rankings including Chambers USA, The Best Lawyers in America, The Legal 500 US, Texas Super Lawyer (Thomson Reuters) and Managing Intellectual Property.
