October 24, 2022 – Three Procopio attorneys—Adriana Ochoa, Bill Eigner and Jeff Morton—have been named to the 2022 Top 100 Leaders in Law by the San Diego Business Journal (SDBJ). The list comprises some of San Diego’s most influential and experienced law firm and in-house attorneys, and is selected by an outside group of legal experts assembled by SDBJ.

Adriana advises public agencies on issues relating to governance, the Ralph M. Brown Act, California Public Records Act, the Political Reform Act, Government Code 1090, the California Voting Rights Act, Proposition 218, public works contracting, operational and business matters, as well as litigation, and serves as General Counsel for the Metro Wastewater Joint Powers Authority.

Adriana leads Procopio’s Health, Education and Government team, and has been recognized by Best Lawyers® and Super Lawyers®.

Bill counsels clients in the areas of venture capital, angel financing, seed capital and financing, governing, operating, buying, selling and merging (M&A) of growing technology and other businesses. His practice focuses on corporate and business transactions, including matters relating to software, telecommunications, e-commerce, cybersecurity, energy, clean technology, life sciences, corporate governance, franchising, employment and independent contractor issues. This is his second consecutive SDBJ Leaders in Law recognition, and for several years he has been named to SDBJ’s SD 500 Most Influential People in San Diego. This year he was named by San Diego Metro magazine to its Top Attorneys and Men of Distinction lists, and he has been recognized by Best Lawyers® and Super Lawyers®.
