Paul qualified as a solicitor in 1981. He attended the University of Keele and gained a joint honours degree in Law and English. Paul worked for another firm in Cumbria, before joining Milne Moser in 1983 and becoming a partner in 1984. He retired from the partnership in 2015, and now works for the firm as a Consultant.
Since qualifying, Paul has specialised in commercial transactions, with particular expertise in the sale and purchase of businesses and companies. He has also specialised in criminal defence law and has represented thousands of defendants charged with a wide variety of charges, including the more complex criminal charges.
The few spare hours of time that Paul has outside of the office are spent running over his local fells, and participating in national orienteering competitions as a member of Lakeland Orienteering Club. He also ensures that he enjoys at least one skiing trip abroad each year.
