About Paul

Learn Paul’s areas of practice.

Paul is a founding member of the firm. Paul’s practice focuses primarily on complex business litigation. He was recently named one of the “Top 100 Attorneys in Southern California” by Los Angeles Magazine, has the highest AV rating in Martindale Hubbell, and is regularly listed in various publications as one of the top attorneys in his field.
Paul is licensed to practice law in the states of California and New York, and has litigated and tried cases in state and federal courts across the country on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. He has also represented clients in various congressional investigations and has defended witnesses in testimony before Congress.

Paul’s experience includes litigating matters involving: breach of contract; breach of fiduciary duty and other business torts; corporate and partnership disputes; real estate transactions; professional malpractice; theft of trade secrets; entertainment financing; and copyright and trademark infringement. Paul also represents foreign clients in litigation in the United States, including clients from Great Britain, the Netherlands, China and Taiwan.

Paul also has extensive experience in filing anti-SLAPP motions, a vehicle by which we get cases against our clients thrown out at the pleading stage, with our clients recovering their attorneys' fees. Over his career, Paul has filed and defended dozens of anti-SLAPP motions, losing just one. In part due to Paul’s work in this area, Murphy Rosen was recently honored as “Best for Anti-SLAPP Motions” by Legal Elite.
