The women of Keker, Van Nest & Peters serve as staunch advocates for some of the most innovative companies in Silicon Valley. They tackle thorny legal issues, act as trusted business partners, and are tapped in times of crisis. 

We count among our women partners lawyers who are defining trade secret and employee mobility law for gig economy companies; patent trial lawyers who are safe-guarding their clients’ crucial technologies; litigators who are mitigating corporate risk by fending off class action claims; and talented white collar defenders shielding their clients from government over-reach. Our women lawyers are equally committed to reforming systemic injustice in their communities and devote significant pro bono time to topics ranging from asylum law to veterans advocacy to environmental protection to reproductive rights.

Women at the firm have been lauded as Women Leaders in Tech Law, California’s Top Women Lawyers, Top IP Lawyers and Top Lawyers Under 40, and Rising Stars. Not only are the women at the firm individually accomplished, our strong community of women provides a unique space for women to thrive and support one another—whether working together to help advance the role of women in the legal profession or mentoring young women at the firm as they grow as attorneys.
