Selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® for Bet-the Company Litigation from 2009–2016, Kopp was named "Bet-the-Company Litigation Lawyer of the Year" for Northeast Ohio in 2016. He has been included as one of the "Top 100 Lawyers" in Ohio and "Top 50 Lawyers" in Cleveland every year since 2007.

A former Akron Bar Association president and founding member of the Akron Bar Foundation (as well as a past governor of that foundation), Kopp also has served the OSBA in a number of capacities. He has been a member of the OSBA Board of Governors since 2012, having chaired the Budget and Headquarters Committee and served on the Audit Committee.
