" I am focussed and innovative, dealing with pressing legal issues with a sense of urgency "

Paul is highly experienced in commercial/corporate law and commercial and tax litigation.  He quickly identifies and deals with the core issues of a legal problem.

Paul has an impressive track record in concluding transactions and in resolving disputes, resulting in a legacy of many satisfied clients.
