“Procopio is more than just a law firm. We are professional problem solvers.”
That is an accurate summary of Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP, the San Diego-based law firm formed in 1946 that has grown into a full-service practice with offices in Del Mar Heights (also known as San Diego’s technology corridor), Silicon Valley, Phoenix and Austin.
Procopio takes pride in having formed a lean organizational model that still offers its clients best-in-class expertise without the financial overhead typically associated with large national and international firms.
“We understand that no two clients are the same, especially when it comes to understanding and appreciating the decision-making philosophies and nuances in working with our Japanese clients,” said Chief Operating Officer James Perkins.
“With offices in Silicon Valley and Austin, we have access to two U.S. Patent and Trademark regional offices. And with our California-based headquarters, this means that our business day overlaps with the Pacific Rim, including Japan, so that we can connect in real-time with those regions,” Perkins added.
Having worked with Japanese clients since the 1960s, Procopio consolidated its connection with Japan with the first dotcom boom in Silicon Valley in the early 2000s and the arrival of Japanese technology maquiladoras (manufacturers) in Baja California, Mexico.

As business between Japan and the United States continues to grow, Procopio remains committed to providing excellent service to its expanding base of Japanese clientele.
“Procopio understands the Japanese market and has the resources to assist these companies across many different areas. We immerse ourselves in the culture and understand the unique business philosophies in Japan. Many of our attorneys speak fluent Japanese and have lived in the Pacific Rim,” said Perkins.
