About joining Bona Law, Paul said, “Having worked with the Bona team as Deputy Attorney General on a complex price-fixing matter, I already knew Bona Law has one of the best antitrust practices in the country. I also was attracted to the firm’s culture and flexibility when it comes to family and other commitments beyond the firm. This aligns perfectly with my own belief that clients are served best by happy lawyers.”

Jarod Bona, Founder of Bona Law, commented, “We’re thrilled that Paul has chosen us. Paul is an outstanding lawyer with an impressive background in the enforcement arena. Paul’s addition to our team will enhance our ability to provide the highest level of legal services to our clients who increasingly require complex advice informed by diverse legal views and experiences, including government service.”

He will be joining Bona Law as Counsel in the San Diego Office.
