Nick E. Yocca is a late founding shareholder of Stradling.

Mr. Yocca's practice focused on corporate and securities law matters and he has extensive experience in public and private financings, mergers and acquisitions, and licensing and cooperative arrangements, as well as in general corporate representation and organization.

His client companies ranged from emerging growth businesses to Fortune 500 corporations and covered a broad range of industries, including:

•Computer hardware

•Biomedical products and services
•Offshore construction
•Financial services

Mr. Yocca received his J.D. degree, with distinction, from the University of Michigan, where he was a member of the Law Review and inducted into the Order of the Coif.

Mr. Yocca was an instructor at Michigan Law School in 1958-59, and served as vice president and general counsel of Oceaneering International from 1975-1980.

Mr. Yocca received the Jurisprudence Award from the Anti-Defamation League in 1998. In addition, he served as a director of the Orange County Business Council and as a member of the National Legal Committee of the American Electronics Association.


“I first started working with Stradling in the mid 1980's when Nick Yocca was corporate (outside) counsel and I was President and COO at Silicon Systems, Inc. a public company in Orange County. Since then Stradling has been my choice as corporate counsel for at least six companies in the Santa Barbara area where I have been either CEO or a Director. I continue to highly recommend Stradling for their understanding of the needs of high technology companies, integrity, competence, insight in contract negotiations, the value of their extensive network of individuals and companies, securities law expertise, fast response time and their flexibility. I strongly believe they offer the best value providing corporate legal services for California headquartered companies ranging from startups to $200M operations.”

Chairman, Active Life Scientific, Inc.
