Paul represents aviation businesses in solving significant and challenging problems. His background litigating and trying to verdict judgment aviation matters nationwide before federal and state courts as well as administrative agencies, sometimes simultaneously, brings a breadth of opportunities to the table when seeking to resolve disputes at their earliest opportunity or in complicated business structures restricted by regulatory overlays. In addition to remaining current trying cases, Paul’s transactional and aviation regulatory practice includes formation, mergers and acquisitions of fixed base operators (FBO’s), air carriers, air charter brokers, public charter operators, maintenance and repair organizations (MRO’s), and the purchase, sale and lease of aircraft.
Paul’s background includes 3 1/2 years with the FAA, experience at two large law firms, leadership positions in various aviation industry and bar association committees focusing on aviation, and project management for successful lobbying campaigns associated with federal, state and local legislative and regulatory initiatives affecting aviation businesses. He also leads the audit committee of the New England Air Museum Board of Directors and has done so through tremendous growth at the museum to include funding initiatives such as two state grant funding transactions toiling several millions of dollars, new building construction and redevelopment of existing structures. Paul is an active pilot with over 3,000 hours and experiences in dozens of aircraft types.
