Lando & Anastasi, LLP (L&A) is pleased to announce the election of David M. Roccio to his first two-year term on the firm’s Management Committee. Robert A. Skrivanek, Jr. was re-elected this year to serve another two-year term. Dave and Bob join Peter C. Lando, who remains on the committee for the coming year.
Expressing her excitement as we move into 2024, Nicole A. Palmer, the firm’s Hiring Partner, remarked, “The firm will benefit greatly from the continuity of Peter and Bob’s leadership, combined with the dynamic energy that Dave will bring to the committee.”
Comprised of three Co-Managing Partners who are elected to two-year terms, the Management Committee (MC) structure at L&A differs from that of most law firms. It mirrors the firm’s approach to our client relationships, focusing on principles that prioritize business goals and collaborative problem-solving.

He has extensive experience in counseling startups—especially foreign-based startups who wish to launch their business in U.S. markets and U.S.-based startups looking to expand abroad. Dave is very active in local and national professional organizations and networking groups, and in 2022, he was nominated and selected to be a member of the U.S. Department of Commerce Commercial Service District Export Council (DEC).
Bob Skrivanek was re-elected to his fourth consecutive term on the firm’s MC. In addition to this role, he is a member of several other firm committees. Bob is a successful patent practitioner with in-depth experience in hardware and software related to complex electronic systems. He provides strategic counsel on the development and management of significant global patent portfolios to clients in a variety of industries.
Peter Lando has been a member of L&A’s MC for many terms sins.ce the firm’s founding in 2003. Peter has a robust practice which involves all areas of intellectual property law and related transactions.
