Mike Oropallo Profiled by Super Lawyers

Mike Oropallo, Branding, Trademarks & Copyrights Practice Area co-chair and co-leader of the Outdoor & Wildlife Team, was recently profiled by Super Lawyers in its "Bird Man: Michael Oropallo on the Only Outdoor and Wildlife Legal Team in the Country" article.

"When Michael Oropallo was a boy, he hunted, fished, hiked and camped. It was fun, but took a back seat to something else.

"My first love is birds," says the co-leader of Barclay Damon’s outdoor and wildlife team, the only of its kind in the nation. "I live on one of the Finger Lakes, and I’m lucky to be able to look out in the fall and winter when the waterfowl are migrating through. I have bird feeders up, and I love the colorations."

Oropallo took that love for the outdoors to college, getting a degree in geology at SUNY Oswego before heading down to the Gulf Coast to work in oil. In the early ’80s, when the industry bottomed out, he headed up to Ohio Northern for a J.D.

His big break came in the mid-’90s, when he tried Hart v. Dan Chase Taxidermy—a case that melded his passion for nature and his intellectual property litigation practice."
