In The Words Of Our Clients

Paul and the team of attorneys he works with are quite simply the best. Every person we have worked with at the Paul Ellis Law Group has been bright, creative, and experienced. They are chess players – they are able to look at the entire board and foresee potential issues and recommend actions to guard against them. They are careful, they think through each move and see how it might affect future moves.

Paul and his team have created tremendous value for our company by making sure we protected our IP at a crucial time and making sure that our formation documents protected the integrity and continued viability of the Company in the event of co-founder turmoil (which came to pass). At the time, these measures seemed like overkill. Now we know better. My partner and I have sheepishly admitted to others that we love our lawyers – we do.

Jennifer SclarCEO, Clear Health Analytics

Paul Ellis and his team have been great to work with. Regardless of the complexity of matters, they have provided prompt, insightful and actionable guidance towards helping achieve business goals both with contracts and strategic decisions. Unlike other law firms working with early stage companies, personal attention was always provided by senior lawyers when it mattered while cost-effectively using attorneys with lower hourly rates whenever appropriate.

Gerry Seidmanserial entrepreneur

We have worked with Paul Ellis for more than 15 years. As a small Cosmetics company, we have had the privilege of working directly with Paul. His tremendous senior-level legal expertise has helped steer the company to greater success. The cost structure has been very reasonable which is crucial to a young company.

Paul feels like a true member of our Real Cosmetics team. He is genuine in his concern for the best interests of the company. Always kind, honest and efficient Paul and his team offer not only legal expertise but have offered important referrals and connections to potential partners and investors.

Lubna KhalidCEO, Real Cosmetics, Inc.

We've worked with Paul and his team ever since our startup first incorporated, and his services were invaluable in every stage of our company -- from the initial organization through to fundraising, stock issuance and everything else. He understands the challenges facing young companies and brings the knowledge, the experience and, above all, the personal involvement that makes such a difference. You get the sense that he really cares about your success.
