At Matheson, we have always been committed to having a strong presence where our clients are located. We were the first European law firm to establish a presence in Silicon Valley (in 1996) and, together with our offices in New York, Palo Alto and San Francisco, our five partner-led offices demonstrate our commitment to client service and responsiveness to the needs of our clients - wherever they are located. Our standards of client care have been built on the implementation of a clear client-focused strategy; a commitment to legal excellence; and the calibre of our legal and business support professionals. Our core values of partnership, respect, innovation, diversity and entrepreneurship characterise our collective dynamic as a firm, and push us to achieve the highest standards as legal professionals and advisers to our clients.
