Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP rose to the number 1 spot in the San Diego Business Journal's annual list of Law Firms. Procopio was started in 1946 by Edward Schwartz and Alec Cory in a 300 square feet office space in San Diego. Today, it houses 132 attorneys in 3 offices in San Diego County with a Silicon Valley office opening this fall.
The firm reported an increase of 20 attorneys over the last year. Managing partner Thomas W. Turner Jr. said that the firm has been fortunate to have experienced growth in a broad array of practice areas including corporate, employment, construction litigation, and intellectual property. Turner attributes the growth of Procopio to the extremely low rate of attrition and adds that “an overwhelming majority of our lateral hires are enjoying thriving practices and a great cultural fit.”
