Buckley Sandler Opens San Francisco Office
WASHINGTON, DC (January 9, 2018) – Buckley Sandler LLP today announced the opening of an office in San Francisco, expanding the firm’s California presence to meet the demands of its growing base of fintech, regtech, and technology clients. The firm also has offices in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and London.
“Being in San Francisco will help us better serve our rapidly growing client base in the Bay Area,” said Andrew L. Sandler, Chairman & Executive Partner. “The pace of financial innovation is accelerating, and fintech, technology, banking, and investment companies in and around San Francisco increasingly turn to us for informed, practical legal advice as they develop new products, form strategic ventures, obtain licenses and bank charters, address regulatory requirements, and pursue acquisitions.”
Clint Rockwell, the leader of Buckley Sandler’s California offices, will co-locate in San Francisco and Los Angeles, as will regulatory and transactional partner John Redding and litigation and enforcement partner Fredrick Levin. Counsels Shara Chang and Kate Shrout will practice full-time in San Francisco. Chang, a regulatory lawyer, rejoined Buckley Sandler after working at a high-growth fintech company; Shrout, an enforcement lawyer, has broad experience in government investigations, white-collar matters, and internal investigations.
Buckley Sandler will offer the full range of its services in San Francisco, with a focus on fintech, transactions, litigation, enforcement, and workplace cultural compliance. Buckley Sandler’s deep roster of clients in the area includes online lenders, mortgage lenders, payments and virtual-currency companies, venture capital and private equity firms, and banks, as well as major technology and internet companies.
“Being in San Francisco will help us work more closely with innovators as they pursue their strategic vision,” said Rockwell. “Our insight and in-depth experience on regulatory and enforcement trends throughout the U.S., including Washington and Sacramento, combined with our extensive knowledge representing businesses that move money, position us to become a leading law firm in the Bay Area for companies bringing new financial products and technologies to market.”
