Hopkins & Carley expands family wealth and tax planning department


Hopkins & Carley, a Northern California-based law firm for businesses and high-net-worth individuals, is hiring Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati’s wealth management practice.

Led by shareholder Peter LaBoskey, former chair of WSGR’s wealth management practice, the team includes Of Counsel Darin Donovan and Laurie-Ann Look and attorneys Diane Fong, Christina Hwang, and Richard Schachtili.

They will be based in Hopkins & Carley’s new Palo Alto location and join a number of attorneys relocating from the firm’s downtown San Jose headquarters.

"This is an exciting time at Hopkins & Carley, which has a long and rich history in serving Silicon Valley individuals and companies," says managing shareholder Bill Klein. "We have admired Pete and his group for many years and are confident that the additional depth and breadth they bring to our family wealth and tax planning department will make it truly unrivaled in the Valley."

"Our wealth management practice has been a valued part of our organisation since the early days of the firm," says WSGR chairman Larry Sonsini (pictured). "As the firm has grown and matured, however, it has become apparent that it would be better to separate the service of our clients’ corporate and litigation needs from the wealth management needs of individuals. Pete and his group are outstanding practitioners in their field, and we look forward to maintaining a close relationship with them in their new role at Hopkins & Carley, which will provide a terrific platform for their practice and serve their clients well."

Hopkins & Carley’s new Palo Alto office will house ten attorneys, including Garth Pickett, chair of the firm’s real estate department.
