Paul T. Engel
- Senior Counsel
My early professional career was spent in R&D and manufacturing – bringing new technologies to market. I cut my teeth as a project leader, chemist, research scientist and production manager for Lear Corporation, Sika Corporation and Henkel. The commercial and technical experience gained early in my career has enhanced my skillset and provided an insightful foundation for my legal career. I can relate to my clients on a level that most attorneys cannot – after all, I’ve sat on both sides of the table. I take this hands-on knowledge and experience into every client meeting and interaction, steadfastly and effectively supporting them as they navigate the commercialization of new technologies.
