Paul Schor has been recognized multiple consecutive years for excellence in civil defense (Boston Magazine and New England Super Lawyers), representing clients in complex civil litigation in state and federal courts, in a broad range of industries, including construction, energy, biotechnology and education. Paul also provides responsive and balanced, candid counsel for intellectual property (IP) transactions; contract drafting, review, and negotiation (including clinical trials, SRAs, business development, commercial leasing, EULA and beta test agreements, etc.); defending against all manner of claims; reducing exposure to liability; and -- for technology-based companies -- assisting with compliance, and regulatory.
Paul served administrative and judicial clerkships for the Connecticut Attorney General, the Connecticut Superior Court, and national staff counsel for the ACLU. He has degrees from the University of Connecticut School of Law, Harvard University, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Before entering the law, Paul worked as an educator and business consultant. As part of his Teach For America posting in the Washington, D.C. public school system, he founded the City Mountain Teams program, an outdoor experiential education program for inner-city teens. In 1995, Paul's Washington, D.C. students earned the greatest citywide gain in verbal skills on the national CTBS test. From 1995-1997, the program received additional funding enabling its expansion into five of the City’s seven middle schools. After returning to his New England roots, Paul worked as a consultant based in Boston, handling marketing and management transitions for several companies including Liberty Financial Services, Janus Funds, Monster.com, Morningstar, and Scholastic, Inc.
Paul was the 2004 winner of the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities’ Excellence in Municipal Law Award, based upon his study and report on future development opportunities of a World War II era working-class subdivision of East Hartford, Connecticut.
