Procopio Makes Multiple Top Law Firm Lists
May 31, 2017 (San Diego) – Procopio in the last week has been named to two top national law firm lists compiled by influential media publications. On May 25, Procopio joined for the first time the 2017 Am Law 200 list, compiled by The American Lawyer magazine ranking firms by revenue. On May 30 the media publication Law360 again named Procopio a Top 400 law firm based on the number of attorneys.
Both rankings reflect the steady and solid growth Procopio has demonstrated over recent years. Also repeatedly ranked as the largest law firm in San Diego by San Diego Business Journal, Procopio actually has five locations—downtown San Diego, Del Mar Heights, Silicon Valley, Phoenix and Austin—with more than 160 attorneys working in more than 40 practice areas.
“While it’s rewarding to make the Am Law 200 for the first time, and to continue to rise on the Law360 400, these accolades are not surprising given our sustained growth year over year,” said Tom Turner, Procopio’s Managing Partner. “We provide a strong value proposition for our clients, successfully going toe to toe with the largest firms, but at a much more reasonable overall cost. We bring a conservative approach to our spending, while ensuring our attorneys have the tools they need to best serve our clients.”
The number of Procopio attorneys has more than doubled since the turn of the century, from about 60 to more than 160 today. Founded in San Diego in 1946, Procopio’s reach now extends far beyond southern California, representing clients across the United States and abroad, particularly in Asia and Latin America. No single practice area has driven Procopio’s growth in recent years. Several practice areas have contributed significantly to the firm’s bottom line, including intellectual property (IP) prosecution, IP and other litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and real estate. Growing practice areas include life sciences and biotechnology, but Procopio attorneys work collaboratively across all practice areas to better serve clients.
“We’re particularly proud of how many attorneys choose to join us from other top firms, as well as the fact that once they come on board they stay,” Turner said. “Our attrition rate is very low. People really enjoy working here.”
