In addition, corporate law firms that locate in certain municipalities of Silicon Valley, including Palo Alto, San Jose, and Santa Clara, have significantly increased failure rates, even controlling for many firm-specific differences.

All told, a law firm’s office location within Silicon Valley has significant consequences for its survival.
