Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Orange County, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego,
San Francisco, and Tucson. The firm covers 22 practice areas, each with several sub-specialties.

International Law Firm Uses Video Conferencing Solution from Polycom to Connect 15 Offices Consisting of More Than 700 Attorneys Based in the U.S. and China

SEATTLE and PLEASANTON, Calif. – Feb 09, 2010 : Perkins Coie is an international law firm that represents companies across a wide range of industries and stages of growth, from start-ups to FORTUNE 100 corporations. As a world-class legal service provider dedicated to uncompromising integrity and quality, one of the law firm’s core principles is teamwork. But in a highly dispersed, international organization, collaboration often required a lot of travel. Recently however, Perkins Coie upped the ante on its teamwork initiative by deploying a companywide visual communication solution from Polycom, Inc. [Nasdaq: PLCM].

A major competitive advantage for Perkins Coie is the ability to leverage any of its 700 attorneys, regardless of physical location, to build the very best team for each individual client. For example, its Fortune 100 client service teams comprise lawyers from a large number of the firm’s many practice areas, resulting in a team with members located hundreds or even thousands of miles away from one another.
