When the unexpected happens, a good strategy accounts for all angles while minimizing the disruption to clients' day-to-day operations. Paul Wiley masters the details of how each client operates and draws on his unique background to help clients get back to business.

Paul's experience in politics and government – as the speechwriter for the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., as the communications director for an advocacy group on Capitol Hill, and as a Digital Strategy intern in the Obama White House – informs his advice to clients facing an investigation. In addition to managing clients' legal exposure, Paul helps develop strategies that minimize the risks of media and political fallout.

Paul has counseled clients in a wide array of heavily regulated industries, including government contracting, telecommunications, and pharmaceuticals. He has handled matters including allegations of trade sanctions violations, criminal antitrust investigations, and responses to FTC inquiries, as well as internal investigations. Paul also maintains an active pro bono practice focused on voting rights and criminal justice reform; he has argued frequently before the Supreme Court of Virginia.

Paul clerked for the Honorable Donald W. Lemons, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, prior to joining Hogan Lovells. He was the Symposium Editor for the Washington and Lee Law Review and was a two-time finalist in the John W. Davis Moot Court Competition.
