The “Her Champion” award recognizes a man who has supported and promoted the advancement and development of women in the legal profession. As Paul’s colleagues will attest, he embodies the spirit that the “Her Champion” Award celebrates.
“Paul has been an instrumental ally in mentoring and sponsoring women attorneys at Haynes Boone, as well as a champion of women in the legal industry,” said Partner Susan Wetzel, who nominated him for the award. “The DWLA award is a much-deserved recognition for Paul.”
Partner Cory Feldman added: “Paul always has an open door for you to bounce ideas off of him, no matter how busy he is. He takes the extra time to really think through and explain things with you. He starts this when you are a first-year associate and continues throughout your career.”
A corporate finance partner at Haynes Boone, Paul helps CEOs, CFOs, private equity sponsors and lenders of every type negotiate, document and close billions of dollars of debt financings. Clients who rely on Paul to represent them in these critical negotiations, whether they are small business owners, public companies, local financial institutions or large money-center banks, value his broad experience in all types of debt, his knowledge of market trends, his practical approach to negotiations and most of all his commitment to understanding and focusing on the client’s goals.
