"I have had the good fortune of working with Procopio on multiple transactions as a client when nutpods was raising capital. I have always appreciated the Procopio team because they blend deep transaction expertise with a practical style that is easy to work with and effective. They know how to identify and push on the important issues, to keep the deal progressing and not bogged down on minor points. Anyone would be in excellent hands with the Procopio team."
