A little more than four years ago, Bay Area firms in search of startup and technology work started to sniff around Seattle. Venture Law Group opened a three-lawyer office in Kirkland, Wash., in September 1996. VLG now has 25 lawyers in Seattle, and hopes to increase the number to 30 by 2002. Cooley Godward opened a seven-lawyer outpost in Kirkland in September 1998. It now has 17 lawyers there, and hopes to expand to 25-35 by mid-2002. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati opened a four-lawyer office in Kirkland in December 1998. It now has 18, and hopes to have 25-35 by 2002. Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich moved into Seattle with a nine-lawyer office in February 2000. It now has 17 there, and hopes to expand to 29 by 2002. Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe opened a five-lawyer office in Seattle last March. That number has jumped to 21, and the firm hopes to have 35-50 lawyers there by 2002.
