For Paul, intellectual property law is an exciting practice at the intersection of innovation, technology and legal strategy.

After earning an undergraduate degree in biology, Paul worked as a research technician for an innovative agriculture company, a position that provided a foundation for understanding the importance of intellectual property protections. His work involved optimizing automation and workflow for isolating and sequencing plant DNA, and he developed an appreciation for maintaining processes as trade secrets.

Paul enjoys working with inventors and scientists, and he is passionate about maximizing legal protections for their work. He excels at the creative thinking necessary to formulate solutions in intellectual property cases. Paul’s goal is never to return to a client with a “no,” but to always offer effective alternatives when pursuing litigation strategies and intellectual property protection.
