He has been for fifteen years an adjunct professor at the Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco where he teaches a course on pretrial litigation practice and lectures on Internet law. He also has taught in the Intensive Trial Advocacy Program at Stanford Law School and in the Trial Advocacy Program at the University of San Francisco Law School.

Before forming Farrimond Law Offices, Mr. Farrimond, was a litigation partner for ten years and a litigation associate for seven years at Lillick & Charles LLP (now Nixon, Peabody LLP), where he was actively involved in firm management, including several years service on the firm’s management committee. He was also a litigation partner for three years at Steinhart & Falconer LLP (now DLA Piper) where he focused on intellectual property, media and aviation litigation. He has a strong background in technology and science, having obtained a Masters Degree in Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, before obtaining his law degree from Stanford University. He makes use of this expertise in his day to day litigation practice, particularly when focusing on matters involving science, technology, engineering, media and the Internet. Mr. Farrimond and the other attorneys at Farrimond Law Offices also strive to use technology intelligently in order to deliver the highest quality client services at a reasonable cost.
