How are we different?

Hoge Fenton is a true multi-service law firm, with focused practitioners, who can meet all of our clients’ needs – all under one roof.

Our IP lawyers are not business lawyers who dabble in IP, they are IP lawyers. Our employment lawyers are employment law experts and our family law lawyers are family law specialists. What does this mean for our clients?

Our breadth of expertise means that one of our lawyers can simply walk down the hall and speak with other subject matter experts. If a tax issue arises in the course of your commercial real estate transaction, we’ve got it covered. If a real estate issue arises in the course of your M&A deal, we can handle it. We are stronger together.

And, as a member of Mackrell International, a premier network of independent law firms in 60 countries, our reach extends around the world. This network provides our clients with access to vetted and trusted local counsel throughout the U.S. and across the globe, allowing us to seamlessly assist our clients in San Jose, California and San Jose, Costa Rica. Mackrell International has been named a Top Ranked Chambers Global Leading Law Firm Network.
