What if Silicon Valley’s next great company were a law firm?

The only modern law firm that partners with the most experienced attorneys in industry to deliver a better client experience at every stage.

Who We Are

A better law firm experience for clients and attorneys.

Scale LLP is a full-service, national law firm founded by former tech company general counsel. Leveraging that experience, our founders set out to rethink the traditional law firm model. The result was a tech-forward, distributed platform that reduces overhead and increases efficiency for clients and team. With less overhead and more tech-enabled connectivity, you get access to the best legal talent at a competitive price-point. That model benefits our attorneys, too, delivering a more tech-forward, lucrative practice model that makes for a more responsive and efficient delivery of legal services.

How We’re Different

Experience in the field matters.

We bring a business partner mentality to the practice of law, honed from substantial industry experience. In addition to serving as in-house counsel, our attorneys have been founders and entrepreneurs, worked for the department of justice, run nonprofits, and learned their trade in the courtroom.

That practical experience affords our entire firm the ability to provide our clients with more operational, practical legal advice than what the traditional industry delivers.

What We Believe to Be True

The legal industry is broken. Technology can fix it.

A firm built on technology rather than brick and mortar can reduce law firm inefficiency by more than one-third.

The best attorneys are attracted to a more efficient economic model that affords a more autonomous, lucrative practice.

The best clients are attracted to the law firms with the best attorneys.

A better law firm model for attorneys and clients inspires greater participation in the legal industry and judicial system.

Our Story & Vision

A more fulfilling legal practice model.

Scale began as a boutique Silicon Valley law firm serving high-growth startups. But as the business grew, our founders stopped to ask themselves an important question: if you could build a national law firm from the ground up, what would it look like?

Led by Founding Partner Adam Forest, Scale pivoted to the model it employs today: one that treats attorneys as clients, too, and therefore provides attorneys with a more compelling platform to practice and clients with more responsive, experienced legal talent.

Joined by industry-veteran David Reidy as Managing Partner in 2021, Scale has grown to become a national firm, representing many hundreds of companies seeking better service from their outside counsel.

We’re outcome-oriented and deliver only the highest quality work for our clients, our colleagues, and ourselves. We know what it takes for businesses and executives to succeed. The entrepreneurship mindset bonds us as a community.
