Paul Brown’s corporate law and governance litigation practice concentrates on high-stake cases on behalf of public and private entities, members of management and investors in cases arising under Delaware corporate law. Many of these disputes are resolved in the Delaware Court of Chancery, the nation’s preeminent forum for the resolution of complex business disputes. Paul’s Chancery litigation practice covers a broad range of matters, such as breach of fiduciary duty claims, corporate control issues, mergers and acquisitions, going-private transactions, corporate restructuring, proxy contests, preferred stock designations, stock repurchases, dissolutions, charter and bylaw amendments, stockholder appraisal actions and statutory proceedings under Delaware’s General Corporation Law.

Paul also represents clients in complex commercial litigation in state and federal court, including bankruptcy court. He handles a wide variety of cases involving contracts, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, business torts, trade secrets, financial instruments, debtor and creditor rights, director and officer liability, and other commercial matters important to our clients.

Paul writes on the topic of Delaware corporate law and has served as a panelist at continuing legal education seminars involving matters of corporate law and governance. He also has taught business law as an adjunct professor.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
