Managing complexity. “After seeing my Procopio team take on the staff of one of the world’s largest law firms and win the battle, I tell everyone I know they need to hire Procopio. Procopio’s efficiently-staffed team shepherded a complicated process to a great exit for all involved: our founders, our venture capital investors and our employees. When crunch time comes, Procopio has the bench strength and expertise to stand up to everything thrown at us. When it comes to M&A, Procopio is my top choice.”
Rob McMillen, Vice President of Rhomobile, Inc. (acquired by Motorola Solutions, Inc.)
Personal, hands-on service. "Procopio offers us all the amenities of a large, multi-national firm with the personal, hands-on service of a local advisor."
Asa Nordgren, CEO & Co-founder, Trice Imaging Inc.
Banyan Biomarkers, Inc.
From startup to breakthrough. “For the past decade, through multiple rounds of financing, and ultimately leading to the FDA’s approval of our Banyan BTI™, we’ve counted on Procopio and Partner Roger Rappoport for critical legal guidance and counsel. When your venture aims to do something no one has done before—in our case, develop and commercialize the first-ever in vitro diagnostic blood test to aid in the evaluation of patients with suspected TBI, also known as concussion—you want an attorney and a law firm that will take the time to understand your unique needs and clear legal roadblocks before you can even anticipate them. That’s what we’ve come to rely on with Roger and Procopio.”
Steven P. Richieri, President and COO, Banyan Biomarkers, Inc.
Range of expertise. "Because of the range of services Procopio offers, we’re able to rely on their expertise in several areas including intellectual property, environmental regulation, public works contracting and dispute resolution. They ensured that all of our needs were met along the way- and we couldn’t be more pleased with their work.”
Kevin Hardy, General Manager, Encina Wastewater Authority
CleanTECH San Diego
Pillar of the community. “Procopio is a pillar of our region’s cleantech economy and sustainability community. We look to Procopio to help our member companies stay abreast of complex legal matters directly affecting their commercialization and business growth strategies.

Jason Anderson, President, CleanTECH San Diego
Promoting your best interests. "The team at Procopio has been with us every step of the way, helping us establish patents and trademarks for our body-surfing products both in the US and abroad and reviewing proposed distribution and sales agreements as well as various contracts for promotional opportunities. Procopio always has our best interests in mind, and we trust them to protect our business as it continues to grow and thrive.”
Nick Gadler, Creator, WaveWrecker
Creative yet practical. "Our Procopio counsel has been doing our joint venture work for more than 15 years, and, simply put, there is no better joint venture counsel. Our counsel is always creative yet practical, adaptive and effective, and efficient, does not negotiate for negotiating sake, and focuses on the material issues."
Bryant W. Burke, Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel, JMI Group
Wolfsheimer Management Corp.
Effective interpersonal communications. "We can always count on Tom Turner, our Procopio real estate lawyer, to bring to the table solid legal expertise, exceptional responsiveness and a pragmatic problem solving capability. What truly sets him apart is his remarkably effective interpersonal communication skills - a certain ‘cordial and professional style’ - that brings about cooperation from the folks on the other side of the table and gets deals done."
Marc Wolfsheimer, President, Wolfsheimer Management Corp.
Victory from start to finish. "Procopio’s IP Litigation team is as good as it gets. In a patent infringement jury trial, they scored a complete victory for us – an outstanding damages award, plus a 10% royalty rate going forward. We could not have been happier with Procopio’s IP Litigation team, and how they handled the case from start-to-finish, and their level of communication with us throughout the process.”
Hirofumi Yamada, Senior Manager, Kaneka Corporation
Expertise and problem solving. “Whether it’s land use, acquisition, leasing, JV’s or finance, the Procopio Real Estate team continues to knock it out of the park for us, deal after deal. The combination of deep legal expertise and pragmatic problem solving gives them a well-earned spot as our trusted partners.”
Doug Arthur, President & CEO, SENTRE, Inc
Mastering complexity. "Ours was a complex deal involving multiple states and twenty-four different properties that we could not have undertaken on our own. Procopio's resourcefulness, combined with their experience, was essential in helping us execute this agreement swiftly and effectively."
David Michan, President, Strata Equity Group
Experienced outside corporate counsel. "Roger Rappoport brought immense practical, legal and business experience to his work, delivered with the highest integrity, diligence and value. Roger's personal approach brought a refreshing style to his interactions with me, our board, bankers and employees. I strongly recommend Roger and Procopio if you are an emerging technology CEO in search of an experienced outside corporate counsel."
Craig Brennan, CEO, Overtone, Inc. (acquired by KANA Software, Inc.)
One World Beef
Knowledge, commitment and dedication. "The Procopio team played a vital role in helping our business succeed, and yet their knowledge, commitment and dedication are all secondary to how they treat their clients. We are honored to have them represent us and recommend them to anyone looking for counsel on environmental and energy issues."
Eric Brandt, President, One World Beef
Wide range of expertise. "One of the things I value about Procopio is its wide range of legal expertise. While I've appreciated the responsive, practical entity and contract drafting work and military subcontract experience provided by the firm's Business Team, I was grateful when the firm's Labor and Employment team stepped in on short notice and solved a particularly thorny labor and employment challenge for us. Procopio is a firm I can count on to get the job done in a timely and effective manner, no matter the ask."
Patrick "Paddy" Gough, Chief Operating Officer, PKL Services, Inc.
Fusion Property Management Company
Responsive, hands-on and intelligent. "From the beginning, our Procopio team took the time to know us and our business—to provide strategic, thoughtful advice. They’ve worked diligently to defend us in numerous litigation matters, including a wage and hour class action, as well as discrimination litigation lawsuits, all of which were resolved successfully. I’d recommend any company trust Procopio with their employment law needs.”
Jana Nunn, President, Fusion Property Management Company
