"Our difference is that we are business people first. We understand that entrepreneurs and owners need practical, prompt, and effective advice so they can make the necessary decisions for their businesses."

With over 35 years of experience advising both entrepreneurs and public companies on corporate, transactional and other business matters, Paul brings a unique blend of business acumen, legal insight, and strategic thinking to clients, providing them with practical legal solutions and exceptional service.

Paul assists clients with mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, financing, intergenerational transfers, joint ventures, limited partnerships and general partnerships, reorganizations, shareholder agreements and other commercial contracts and agreements. He has a firm grasp on the sophisticated matters and transactions his clients are involved in and has the experience to both challenge and guide them through their decision-making  process.

He continues to earn his reputation as a valuable and trusted advisor by taking a personal interest in all his clients, quickly understanding complicated and time-sensitive matters, understanding the tax, regulatory and other implications involved, and recommending strategic courses of action that enable his clients to get the results they expect. As testament to Paul's diligence and service to clients, most of the firm’s client relationships originate from referrals.

In addition to corporate matters, Paul has extensive expertise in residential, commercial and industrial land development including in-depth experience in all aspects of both freehold and condominium land development, the negotiation of sophisticated servicing cost sharing agreements, cross-border agreements, DC credit for service and refund agreements, zoning, bonusing, front ending, municipal responsibility, development, site plan and subdivision agreements, reciprocal operating and rights agreements, licenses, and other arrangements among land owners, condominiums, municipalities and other authorities.

As a Director of the firm, Paul prides himself on the role he has played in cultivating a culture of engagement, teamwork, and entrepreneurial spirit at McCarter Grespan — all of which is key to building lasting relationships with their clients.
