“It’s just me so far, but we’ll be adding people,” Paulson says.
Paulson, formerly a partner at Baker Botts in Austin, says he joined Katten as a partner on Nov. 27 and is heading up Katten’s environmental aspects of energy production practice.
Over the past few years, his practice has concentrated on air quality and greenhouse gas issues, Paulson says. In the past year or so, he says, his focus has been on greenhouse gas preconstruction air permits.
Paulson says he was attracted to Katten by the “stellar reputations” of its environmental attorneys, including Washington, D.C., partners Chuck Knauss and Steve Solow, co-chairmen of the firm’s environmental practice, and Shannon Broome, chairwoman of the firm’s air quality and climate change practice.
“Getting to practice with that great team” drew him to Katten, Paulson says.
Paulson says he is a 1998 graduate of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where he was the articles editor for the University of Denver Law Review.
