The firms of Kilpatrick & Cody in Atlanta and Petree Stockton in Winston-Salem merged their well established firms in early 1997 to form Kilpatrick Stockton. On January 1, 2011, Kilpatrick Stockton and Townsend and Townsend and Crew merged to form Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP. Townsend's history is inextricably linked with the evolution of technology in the U.S. and around the world. Their history mirrors that of Silicon Valley and other technology regions throughout the U.S., bringing solutions to technical problems that the law could never have anticipated.
