Paul is an attorney and a filmmaker. For the last decade and a half, he has concentrated his practice on intellectual property matters (particularly media and technology), and he has advised start-ups as well as multi-billion dollar multinationals on a wide range of transactions. His documentary films have been published by the New York Times Op-Docs, the New Yorker, and the Atlantic (upcoming), and his films and photos have been shown at festivals and galleries internationally. In the past, Paul was a software developer and a drummer, and he still plays Pearl drums, and tinkers with Java libraries. After clerking for the Hon. Judge Pfaelzer in the Central District of California, Paul was an associate at O’Melveny & Myers in San Francisco and Morrison Foerster in New York City. He was also an in-house counsel at Bloomberg. He’s a graduate of Columbia University (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa), where he studied history and philosophy, and Yale Law School, where he focused on free speech and intellectual property.
