Thelen LLP was founded in San Francisco in 1924. Known for the firm’s expertise in construction law, Thelen Marrin Johnson & Bridges, as it was known then, went on to work on some of the world’s largest projects, including the Hoover Dam, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. Following the 1998 merger with Reid & Priest, the firm was also recognized nationally and internationally for its utility finance and energy expertise. That experience has also been put to use in the area of renewable energy with the firm more recently working on some of the largest wind and solar projects in the world.
Over the years the firm has also been a leader in such areas as Corporate Finance; Antitrust and Mass Tort Litigation; Labor and Employment; and Intellectual Property.
Thelen has offices in San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, San Jose, Hartford and Northern New Jersey.
