Joe Campolo is Managing Partner at Campolo, Middleton & McCormick. He specializes in representing individuals and businesses involved in routine or complex legal matters. He served honorably in the United States Marine Corps, and then attended Stony Brook University from which he graduated with honors. He then attended Fordham Law School, where he was a member of the Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal, served as a research assistant for Michael Martin (Evidence, 7th Ed.) and as a judicial intern to Judge Denis Hurley (EDNY). Upon graduating he began practicing law at some of Long Island's largest and most respected law firms. He also served as the Village Prosecutor for the Village of Sands Point. Joe was then brought on to serve as inhouse General Counsel to a national technology company, where he was ultimately promoted to President. During his tenure as General Counsel, he was responsible for the company's international growth and gained tremendous experience in negotiating and closing all types of business agreements and transactions, raising private equity, as well as managing complex business litigation. While President, he attended and completed the Executive Business Program at the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Having broad experience in both commercial litigation and transactions, Joe's practice today focuses on forming companies, raising capital and ultimately helping those companies with a merger, acquisition, sale, or other liquidity event, as well as representing and advising the Boards of those entities (for both for-profit and not-for-profit entities). He has also successfully tried business litigation cases in both State and Federal Court (including RICO, antitrust, securities, shareholder/member breakups, Intellectual Property, employment, contracts, UCC, non-compete and breach of fiduciary duty claims), has been involved in numerous arbitrations and mediations, and has conducted administrative hearings before many federal and state agencies.
Joe is also very active in the Long Island community, volunteering this time and services for many local non-profit organizations. He is also on the faculty at Stony Brook University, where he teaches Business Law in the MBA Program. He has published articles and advisories in numerous publications and has appeared on many local television, newspaper and radio programs.
