Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP is extraordinarily proud to announce that Managing Partner  Joe Campolo  has been recognized as one of the most distinguished leaders in the Long Island business community and will be inducted into the “Long Island Business Hall of Fame” on November 7, 2019. This prestigious awards program seeks out the most influential leaders in the business community. Induction into the Hall of Fame is a high honor reserved for Long Island leaders who demonstrate a commitment to excellence.

Campolo is recognized as a Long Island “Icon,” a leading authority on negotiation, and a power player in growing Long Island’s economy.

Under his leadership, CMM has grown from two lawyers to a robust and highly respected team of over 30 lawyers servicing clients in a wide range of practice areas—and continues to grow—with a deep commitment to the community. His entrepreneurial spirit is behind critical initiatives to strengthen the Long Island business community and promote innovation, and he has spearheaded some of the most important projects in recent years to grow the economy. As Chairman of the HIA-LI Board of Directors, Campolo is the driving force behind HIA-LI’s major initiative to rebrand and capitalize on the opportunity of the Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge, the largest industrial park in the nation after Silicon Valley, attracting public and private dollars to support this critical economic engine.

Campolo is also a philanthropist who gives financial support and time to some of Long Island’s most impactful nonprofits, particularly those with a focus on veterans as well as the arts. Prior to starting CMM, Campolo served honorably in the United States Marine Corps. Read more.
CMM Recognized with
Newsday 2019 Top Workplace Award
Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, a premier law firm with offices across the spine of Long Island, has been named a  Newsday  2019 Top Long Island Workplace based solely on employee feedback. The anonymous survey, administered by research partner  Energage, LLC , measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, to gauge employee satisfaction.

“There are few awards given in today’s environment that truly mean something – this is one of them as it came from a confidential vote placed by our employees,” said CMM Managing Partner  Joe Campolo . “It’s something we should all be proud of, as it validates everything we set out to be as a firm.”

“My manager encourages my ideas and listens to me when I disagree or have another opinion,” reported one employee. “In past jobs, I felt like my opinion didn’t make a difference.”

CMM offers unparalleled opportunities to grow professionally, be challenged, and work with sophisticated clients and colleagues. The firm invests in employees’ professional development at all levels with training on a variety of topics. CMM’s marketing and communications initiatives have raised the bar for Long Island firms, offering superior opportunities for lawyers and professionals to gain visibility in the business community.

Giving back is an integral part of CMM’s DNA, with numerous fundraising and volunteer activities throughout the year through the firm’s charitable arm,  CMM Cares . In their survey responses, employees reported a fun and active firm culture with plenty of activities for everyone. The firm rewards staff for their hard work with weekly hot breakfasts, monthly catered team lunches, an annual firm BBQ, a luxurious holiday party, and more. The firm established a Culture Committee made up of a rotating group of employees to ensure that activities are varied and to give the team a voice.

“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.” Read more.
