About Paul

Paul advises our business clients on all aspects of corporate and commercial work, ranging from company sales and purchases to shareholder agreements and commercial contracts.

Paul trained at and worked for some of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the country (Freshfield Bruckhaus Deringer in London and DLA Piper and Addleshaw Goddard in Liverpool and Manchester) before launching his own law firm in 2009 after identifying a niche in the commercial law market.  At just 29 years old he started with a blank piece of paper, a pen and a phone, and grew his practice to being a respected and established firm in the Liverpool legal market with a variety of esteemed clients, before selling to a larger competitor in 2015 to focus on his online and property development businesses.

His entrepreneurial background gives Paul a unique perspective when providing legal advice to other business owners because he knows what it feels like to walk in their shoes.  This means that, unlike other corporate lawyers, he is not only advising on the legal elements of any transaction but can also provide general commercial advice and insight, helping our clients to balance the risks and benefits in any deal.

Throughout his career, Paul has advised clients of all shapes and sizes ranging from large multi-national corporations to local family run businesses, and he is able to use his vast experience to tailor his approach to whatever the situation requires. Paul is pro-active and driven to achieve whatever outcome our clients desire, while being down to earth and able to discuss transactions in an easy to understand way.
