About Hanson Bridgett LLP

Hanson Bridgett is a Northern California law firm with more than 150 attorneys in offices in San Francisco, Sacramento, the North Bay, and the East Bay. In 1936 Arthur T. Bridgett and Raymond L. Hanson graduated from two San Francisco law schools and embarked on disparate early careers. Bridgett graduated from San Francisco Law School, opened a one-man shop focusing at first on corporate law and later on litigation, and in 1953 joined Gerald Marcus to form Bridgett & Marcus. Meanwhile Hanson graduated from Hastings Law School, served as ADA in San Francisco for two years, and served as a Navy intelligence officer during WWII, forming Schofield, Hanson and Jenkins after the war. In 1958 the two firms merged to form Schofield, Hanson, Bridgett, Marcus & Jenkins, which would later become simply Hanson Bridgett.  Like Ben & Jerrys and Etsy, Hanson Bridgett is a certified B Corp, meaning it is committed to benefit society as well as its shareholders.
