Biography

Paul helps clients navigate increasingly complex environmental requirements governing global supply chains and products across their life-cycle.

He works with leading companies to anticipate and comply with product-related environmental requirements in the U.S. and in key markets worldwide. He has represented U.S. business interests in the negotiation and implementation of regional and global environmental agreements that drive national legislation and the circular economy.

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)

Paul advises companies on compliance with expanding EPR laws governing the management of used and end-of-life electronic equipment, batteries, medical devices, unwanted pharmaceuticals, and other regulated products in the U.S. and in other countries. He has advised clients on the successful launch of regional and global take-back programs.

Basel Convention and Circular Economy

Paul serves as a strategic advisor to companies on new circular economy initiatives with a focus on reuse of products, waste classifications, and logistics. He regularly advises on requirements governing transboundary shipments of electronic products for reuse, repair, and recycling. For more than two decades, he has represented clients in the electronics sector on the negotiation and implementation of international controls and trade bans arising under the Basel Convention, a global agreement governing the transboundary movement of wastes and recyclables.

Market Access Legislation

Paul provides actionable compliance advice on market access requirements for products subject to RoHS measures and material ban legislation, energy efficiency mandates, and product design requirements.

Responsible Sourcing

Paul also advises a diverse group of companies on due diligence, supply chain communication, and disclosure requirements related to the responsible sourcing of timber, conflict minerals, and other raw materials.

Conservation Leadership

Paul is active with many of the country’s leading conservation organizations. He serves on the board of the Conservation Fund which since its founding has protected over 8 million acres of natural lands and working landscapes. He is a former board chair of the Environmental Law Institute and Chesapeake Conservancy. He has also served on the boards of the American Bird Conservancy and World Environment Center. He has advised non-profit clients on the protection of whales, the establishment of nature reserves in South America, global protections for albatrosses and other seabirds, and sustainable fisheries management.
