Paul J. Pollock is a partner in the New York office of Crowell & Moring and concentrates his practice on mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance. He provides ongoing representation to middle market private equity sponsors, family offices and their portfolio companies, as well as public and private companies that are not sponsor backed. Paul's industry experience includes representing clients in financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications, fintech, software products, publishing and entertainment, with recent emphasis on the healthcare and biotech industries.

Paul represents private equity sponsors, family offices, healthcare providers, and emerging companies in executing their acquisition objectives. He works on both the buy and sell-side of middle-market businesses seeking to realize value through the sale of their businesses, and with foreign companies who are seeking to enter the U.S. marketplace, access the U.S. securities markets or to engage in transactions with U.S. companies.

Paul has extensive experience in representing emerging companies and entrepreneurs. He works with companies through their entire life cycle including advising on the formation and choice of business entity; preparing and negotiating shareholder and limited liability company agreements, employment agreements and other critical corporate contracts; advising on multiple rounds of private equity financing and debt financing; and representing companies in their initial public offering and in connection with ongoing securities compliance filings work.

In addition to representing issuers in acquisitions and divestitures, private and public offerings and debt financings, he has also represented underwriters in public offerings and placement agents in private placements as well as foreign issuers in connection with offerings under SEC Regulations.

Responding to the Covid-19 crisis, Paul has been on the forefront of the Paycheck Protection Program under the Cares Act.  He has advised clients in determining eligibility for loans, as well as assisting clients in calculating loan and forgiveness amounts.  He has also presented on numerous webinars on the Paycheck Protection Program and was quoted in a May 13 article in The New York Times titled “Small-Business Loan Deadline Poses Test for Mnuchin.

Paul received his B.A., cum laude, from Colgate University, where he was a member of Omicron Delta Epsilon, and his J.D. from Fordham Law School. Paul is admitted to the New York bar and is a member of the New York State Bar Association, Association of the Bar of the City of New York, and the Association for Corporate Growth.
