Belcher, Smolen & Van Loo is a boutique law firm serving technology and life sciences companies and their investors in connection with mergers & acquisitions and intellectual property transactions.
We are a law firm based in Silicon Valley and San Francisco serving technology and life sciences companies and their investors in M&A, joint ventures and other corporate finance transactions.
As a boutique firm, we take pride in providing our clients with greater attention and priority than larger firms and focus on both their business and legal needs. Yet unlike other boutique firms, we are not corporate “generalists.” Rather, we focus on high-end work predominately in the areas M&A transactions, business income tax and international tax, and intellectual property and technology.
Many of our clients call upon us for transactions in the middle market in particular, due our reputation for sophistication and responsiveness combined with practical advice and flexibility to align staffing and billing methods with client needs. For those transactions that require further specialized guidance, such as in the areas of antitrust, we routinely collaborate with a curated team of elite specialists to offer clients a comprehensive solution.
