If you’re a venture capitalist or entrepreneur, you’re familiar with our PitchBook stats. Gunderson Dettmer was ranked by PitchBook as 2016’s most active Venture Capital law firm in the world.

But, you’re a 2L or a JD/MBA candidate, so you may have checked out our 2016 Vault rankings:

#2 Best Law Firms for Integration of Laterals/Clerks

We also receive consistent top rankings in The American Lawyer’s annual summer associate survey.

Every law firm aspires to build relationships. We’re here to build companies, too. Gunderson Dettmer is the only business law firm of its kind—singularly focused on the global venture capital and emerging technology marketplace. With more than 220 attorneys in nine offices—from Silicon Valley to Beijing—we innovate for innovators, promote entrepreneurship, and represent companies at every stage of the growth lifecycle. Every lawyer here is a business lawyer, so they’re hands-on and actively engaged in the issues that shape success for our clients.

We aren’t big law; we are a focused firm that does some of the biggest deals in tech. Our clients and deals are notable and global, and you’ll get a chance to take on the work of a first or second year associate. We have high expectations and you’ll be challenged to think in ways that law school can’t teach. You’ll dig into the tech space and start-ups, venture funds and financings, and leadership and management.
