"Since the mid 1980's, when I was President and COO at Silicon Systems, Inc. a public company in Orange County, Stradling has been my choice as corporate counsel. I highly recommend Stradling for their understanding of the needs of high technology companies, integrity, competence, insight in contract negotiations, the value of their extensive network of individuals and companies, securities law expertise, fast response time and their flexibility. I strongly believe they offer the best value providing corporate legal services for California headquartered companies."
Stephen E. Cooper,
Trustee and former Chairman UC Santa Barbara Foundation
Chairman Active Life Scientific, Inc.
"Stradling worked with us from incorporation as a small technology startup to a successful exit and provided us with excellent service and advice throughout. Their attorneys were always available, night and day, to quickly guide us through complicated negotiations and help us focus on the issues that mattered."
CEO, Anchovi Labs, Inc.
"Stradling has been instrumental from the day we formed our company through our two financing and has helped us with everything in between. We wouldn't be nearly as strong without their consistent, informed, compassionate and responsive help."
Gary I. Singer,
Founding Partner & CEO, BUYOLOGY INC.
“Our team at Stradling did an outstanding job leading us through the litigation process relating to our nearly billion dollar sale. After a limited discovery process and a very favorable ruling from the Court, they resolved multiple class actions in both California and Delaware (during a hurricane in Delaware, no less!). Their efforts allowed for a smooth closing of this transaction for the benefit of our shareholders.”
Jerry Pellizzon, Former CFO, Ceradyne
Stradling led Ceradyne’s acquisition by 3M for $860 Million
“I have worked closely with Stradling on several financing deals over the past 7 years. I have found them to be knowledgeable, fair, responsive and thoughtful. They have been able and willing to address complex problems and to propose straightforward and workable answers. The attorneys at SYCR have successfully negotiated several difficult transactions, including successfully handling protracted negotiations among founders, senior executives, universities and several venture capital funds. The SYCR advisory role with respect to the technology and financial terms were instrumental in the success of the deals.”
Dr. Russell Lebovitz,
CEO, DX Biosciences
"I've worked with a lot of lawyers and it isn't difficult to find those who know the law. Those who see the big picture and act in a role as true business partner -- are very rare. Stradling fits that description. I always get more than I expect when we work together."
Managing Director Finistere Ventures

Chief Financial Officer, MaxLinear, Inc.
"It is rare to find a group of lawyers that are so skilled in both business and legal issues and at the same time are such a pleasure to deal with. The pleasure was all mine and I couldn't recommend the firm more highly."

"Stradling has been an essential ingredient to our long-term success: they provided critical advice when we set-up our company, provided essential advice as we have been growing our enterprise and been a great resource in introducing us to investors and negotiating financing documents on behalf of the Company. In connection with technology transactions, we have consistently received expert advice from experienced counselors who understand our business needs and organizational challenges.
They are world-class attorneys for professors looking to start businesses."
Fred Kavli Chair in Nanotechnology, Director of the Institute for Energy Efficiency
Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UCSB
"I have worked with Stradling for several years and found exceptionally talented lawyers and terrific business partners. Experts in corporate law, from launch to IPO and beyond, they've helped our professors, graduate students and college students envision, launch and develop their ideas into thriving businesses. Their lawyers' understanding of business challenges of emerging growth companies, their deep bench of experience including in licensing (especially in a university context) and their ability to explain issues to new entrepreneurs have made them invaluable partners."
