At SV Skyline, we blend Silicon Valley technical and business sophistication with broad legal expertise to provide you with unique legal counsel.


Whether you are an entrepreneur, startup company, global enterprise, investor, or financial institution, we combine superior technology proficiency, industry experience and legal expertise to help you surpass your competition and maximize your business potential.  We leverage our experience as outside counsel from top law firms and as General Counsel inside private and public companies to give you sophisticated legal advice.  We are not your typical lawyers, and we don't give you pros and cons for your hard problems; instead, we act as your close legal counselor, we give you solutions, and we help you drive towards the outcomes you want.
