The venture ecosystem—our home court.
We challenge every lawyer at Gunderson to be as entrepreneurial and innovative as the people that hire us. Our clients expect smart, informed, anticipatory counsel from intuitive, networked, creative, pragmatic, disciplined lawyers. We expect the same in our candidates. We look for real people with specific talents. We look for people who share our vision. Before we ask if you're right for us, we want to know if we're right for you.
The venture ecosystem has become global, but it’s still an incredibly small world. Our best lateral candidates have usually worked opposite us on a deal or shared a client in common. We’ve probably gotten to know you professionally and personally on high-stakes deals or late-night conference calls. We have a good feel for who you are before we start talking about working together. You share our practical approach to delivering results to your clients and our commitment to client service. With so much in common, lateral integration issues aren’t really issues.
We have a team-oriented culture that few competitors can match and we attract the most exciting venture and technology clients around the world. If you see opportunity where others see risks, solutions where others see problems, and want to work with like-minded iconoclasts and builders, let’s talk.
"They aren't just lawyers, they're our partners. They understand the eco-system of Silicon Valley and its extension globally. They are business people who know what it takes to start, run and grow a company."
"At this firm, you'll get whatever responsibility you're ready for."
"It is the best place to be a corporate associate, hands down. From the mix of work to the quality of my colleagues, I couldn't ask for a better place to practice."
