I have hired Paul Spiegel as a lawyer and a legal consultant on more than one occasion. He is immensely knowledgeable and helpful. As a result of my association over the years we have also become good friends and he has purchased art works from me on several occasions over the years. I would recommend him highly as an attorney.

When startups ask me for a pointer to legal help, I send them to Paul. He’s been a friend to the future tech community for many years. I even went to Paul for a referral when a friend was going through a tough divorce. Somehow he makes time to take the call whenever I have a question. Overall he’s been a pleasure to interact with.

His commitment to legal structure, in an ever changing field, makes him a stand-out favorite. He is regularly seen attending biotech conferences and is well known and respected by the scientific community.

Mr. Spiegel’s counsel has been of great benefit to all of the undertakings I have sought his advice on. His wisdom has carried with me in to many aspects of my career, even many years later. I highly recommend Paul Spiegel for his clarity and resolution in the most unusual of cases.
