Palo Alto, San Francisco and San Jose, Calif., April 3, 2018 – Hopkins & Carley, a preeminent Silicon Valley law firm with offices in Palo Alto, San Francisco, and San Jose, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018. Since its founding in 1968, the firm has established itself as a pioneer and leader in the Bay Area.

“For five decades we have been dedicated to supporting the evolution, entrepreneurship, and vibrancy of Silicon Valley,” said Managing Shareholder Jeffrey Essner. “We look forward to continuing to serve the community for many years to come.”

Mayor Sam Liccardo and the San Jose City Council recognized Hopkins & Carley March 20 at the San Jose City Council meeting. During a commendation presentation at City Hall, the firm was praised for “providing outstanding legal and community service to San Jose and its surrounding communities for 50 years.”

Hopkins & Carley, which employs more than 70 attorneys across a breadth of practice areas, advises leading businesses – many of which have evolved from small brick-and-mortar enterprises to multi-national companies – as well as high-net-worth individuals and institutions throughout Northern California. Hopkins & Carley’s current clients include financial institutions, technology companies, real estate developers, and senior executives of many Fortune 500 companies.

From its earliest days, the firm’s attorneys and staff have maintained a strong commitment to giving back to the community by volunteering with various charitable organizations, providing pro bono services, and serving in leadership positions in community organizations. 

“There are few local businesses that so consistently live up to the term ‘community stalwart,’” said The Silicon Valley Organization President & CEO Matt Mahood. “For half a century, Hopkins & Carley has been true to San Jose, true to its business, and true to the community it serves. We are proud to call them our own.”
