Procopio Extends Turner's Managing Partner Term

January 25, 2012

San Diego, CA
- The law firm of Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP voted to extend the term of Thomas W. Turner, Jr. as Managing Partner through calendar 2015. First elected as managing partner in 2001, Turner serves as the firm’s chief executive and chair of the Firm's management committee.  Under his leadership, Procopio has experienced tremendous success and growth and continues to flourish.

"The legal industry has probably faced greater challenges over the past three years than ever in its history.  Procopio has come through it stronger than ever.  The firm's ability to thrive during these most challenging times is a testament to Tom's leadership,” said Robert Russell, who served as managing partner of Procopio from 1994-1997.  “There is no question he is the captain of this ship steering us through the turbulent waters, and that we are in a great position in large part because of him.  I am delighted that Tom has agreed to stay at the helm for three more years."
Prominent legal Recruiter Larry Watanabe of Watanabe Nason, LLC, said, “Under Tom Turner’s leadership, Procopio has successfully thrived in an exceptionally competitive San Diego legal community. In a period involving law firm consolidation, dissolutions and new law firm entrants into the San Diego region, Tom has skillfully guided and furthered Procopio’ s market and brand position. Importantly, with the continued growth of the firm, he has been able to maintain and enhance the cultural integrity of Procopio.”
Formerly the leader of the firm’s real estate team, Turner actively maintains his broad-based commercial real estate transactional practice, which includes all property types.  Turner has been selected for inclusion in the Southern California Super Lawyers® - San Diego list for Real Estate every year since the inception of publication in San Diego, and is an AV rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell.

In addition to his law practice, Turner is an active member of the community, volunteering for numerous local organizations. He serves as Chair of the National Conflict Resolution Center, is on the Boards of Directors and the Executive Committees of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties and the San Diego County Taxpayers Association, and serves on the EDC’s Chairman’s Competitiveness Counsel.  He is also a member of The Urban Land Institute and the Lawyers Club.  Additionally, he has served as President of the San Diego League, Home Start, and the San Diego County Taxpayers Association, volunteered as a youth sports coach, and is a recipient of the Wiley Manuel Award for Excellence in pro bono legal services.  In 2010, he was honored as a Father of the Year by the American Diabetes Association.
