Paul Lee: Attorney
Paul Lee, a partner in the private equity and securities & corporate finance practices of Goodwin Procter, LLP, was honored by the American Bar Association’s Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession with its “Spirit of Excellence Award.” He was honored in February during the Commission’s mid-year meeting in Miami.
The award recognizes the accomplishments of lawyers who promote racial and ethnic diversity in the legal profession. He was nominated for the award by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) in recognition of his career-long efforts to encourage diversity in his community, at his law firm, and nationally at the ABA and NAPABA. In 1983, Paul founded the Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts and became its first president. He also has been president of NAPABA, and has served on its board for five years.
In his corporate and securities law practice at Goodwin Procter, Paul represents high technology and financial services companies; advises boards of directors; and represents large and small public- and privately-held companies in connection with business, securities, governance, and transactional matters. He also advises high technology ventures on their organization, seed- and venture-capital financings, IPOs, and licensing issues.
