November 7, 2016 (San Diego) _ Procopio is pleased to announce that Partner Paul B. Johnson, co-chair of Procopio’s Mergers & Acquisitions and Strategic Joint Ventures practice group, has been named Advisor of the Year 2016 in the category of “Sell-side Legal Representation in a Sale to a Public Company – Deal Size under $25M.” Paul was also a finalist in two additional categories, “Sell-side Legal Representation in a Sale to a Public Company—Deal Size over $25M” and “Sales under $25M to a Private Company.”
This award acknowledges local middle market mergers and acquisitions professionals who have significantly contributed to the successful sale, expansion or recapitalization of their clients’ companies. The awards program was held at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology on October 27.
“Paul has long set the standard for excellence in representing clients on corporate, securities and M&A matters,” said Tom Turner, Procopio’s Managing Partner. “This recognition from BNY Mellon Wealth Management and their group of judges is a testament to his achievements and validation of the high regard his clients and peers have for his ability to add value to his deals. We congratulate him on this award and look forward to a continued bright future in Paul’s growing M&A practice.”
At Procopio, Paul has counseled some of the most successful technology companies in acquisitions, public and private securities offerings, Securities and Exchange Commission compliance and general corporate governance. Paul’s practice focuses on buy and sell-side mergers and acquisitions, venture capital investments, securities offering and compliance, start-up companies and general business counseling.
“This program is about so much more than the recognition,” says Paul Thiel, managing director for title sponsor BNY Mellon Wealth Management. “It’s also an educational institution that organizes and promotes ongoing M&A seminars and conferences. This fills an important niche in the San Diego business community.”
