Paul is a recognized leader in alternative dispute resolution, having been appointed in over a hundred and sixty-five arbitrations and mediations in the U.S., the U.K., and Bermuda. Paul's success in mediation derives from combining his experience in arbitration and as a seasoned negotiator to the issues separating two or more parties. He is currently the sole shareholder and principal of AzuRe Advisors, Inc., a consulting company dedicated to alternative dispute resolution, litigation advice and consulting on capital management issues for the insurance industry.
Paul started in the insurance business as a commercial property-casualty underwriting in 1976 and has held positions of increasing responsibility over the years, most recently as CEO of Converium Reinsurance (North America) and Converium Insurance (North America). Prior to assuming his responsibilities at Converium, Paul served as Managing Director of GIO Insurance Limited (Australia). His negotiation skills have been honed over the years through commutations generating collections of over $2 billion for the Transit Casualty Receiver and commutation programs which restored the balance sheet strength of GIO and Converium (North America).
Paul is a Certified Arbitrator and Certified Umpire by ARIAS-U.S. He is one of the first to have been elevated to General Member status of the American Board of Neutrals Association. Paul has been a member in good standing of the State Bar of California since 1979.
