Paul M. O'Brien is Promoted to Equity Partner at Falcon Rappaport & Berkman LLP
Falcon Rappaport & Berkman LLP (“FRB”) is pleased to announce that Paul M. O’Brien, Esq is now an equity partner at the firm.
After earning his law degree from Brooklyn Law School, Paul started his legal career at FRB’s predecessor firm, Falcon Jacobson & Gertler LLP. Since FRB’s founding in 2018, Paul has been a valuable member of FRB and has consistently proven his work ethic and dedication to the organization and its clients. Paul has worked extremely hard to not only carry out his duties as an attorney, but also to look for ways to improve the effectiveness of the firm, grow FRB’s presence in the community, and promote the firm’s values to clients and business partners.
Paul focuses his practice in the areas of commercial litigation, estate litigation, and Article 81 guardianships. Paul represents business and private clients in a wide variety of complex litigation matters in state and federal courts, ranging from international trademark and licensing disputes, to claims against government agencies, to contested probate proceedings, and disputes involving real estate transactions. Notably, during the past year, Paul represented parties in contested guardianship hearings conducted by virtual means under the court’s COVID-19 protocols, guided a commercial property owner in a 1031 exchange involving properties valued in excess of $70,000,000 and assisted local businesses with obtaining government benefits.
Paul and the rest of the FRB team look forward to continuing the Firm’s growth and success in tackling new and interesting challenges requiring deep, interdisciplinary expertise.
