Rutan & Tucker LLP is one of California’s leading law firms, with more than 140 attorneys in offices in Orange County, Palo Alto and San Francisco. Our practice is divided broadly into two primary areas: business (Corporate, Litigation, Employment, Real Estate, Tax, IP/Tech, Financial Practices, International Law, Estates and Trusts, and Mediation) and government (Municipal Law and Redevelopment).

Our business clients range from large multinational corporations to technology start-ups. Our government clients include many California cities and government entities.

We are headquartered in the Orange County city of Irvine, in the heart of Southern California’s Tech Coast. Our offices offer state-of-the-art workplace design and technology, and are just minutes from some of Southern California’s best beaches and shopping and a short drive from the desert resort communities and local mountains. Our Palo Alto office is located at the hub of the Silicon Valley business community and our San Francisco office is located in the City’s Financial District. To put it simply, we offer our professionals an exciting and challenging practice in three of the greatest places in the world to live.

We are dedicated to the belief that the practice of law is a profession, not just a business. We have a strong tradition of service and dedication to our clients, and we believe that clients are ill-served by law firms that treat professional services as a commodity, and who define professional growth and development in terms of billable hours. Our growing list of clients suggests that we are not alone in this belief.

At Rutan & Tucker, being a professional means working hard, but it also means maintaining a sense of balance. That means taking time for our communities, our families, and ourselves. We are an equal opportunity employer, and are proud of the diversity of our workforce.
