E. Paul Dougherty Jr

Paul Dougherty has been defending product liability and general liability cases for more than 25 years. His legal practice focuses on product liability defense of products and insurance matters and commercial negotiations. Paul relocated to Los Angeles after five years working with the firm’s clients in Tokyo. Prior to his tenure in Japan, Paul was a trial lawyer in the firm’s New York office, taking to verdict more than a dozen cases involving both domestic and foreign clients.

Paul’s domestic and foreign experience has endowed him with a seasoned perspective on the clients’ needs and with the judgment to craft efficient, reasonable and cost-effective resolutions to disputes and legal issues. His second-degree (Ni-dan) black belt in Japanese karate reflects the focus, discipline and concentration Paul extends to his clients. He is a member to the firm’s Attorney Education and Development Committee and the Los Angeles office Operations Group.
