Paul Attia is a trial lawyer, family business advisor and an executive in his own family’s enterprise. Working as a litigator for nearly 15 years has provided Paul with ringside seats to the results of poor decision-making. In Part 1 of this two-part episode, Paul gives us a look into his background so we can fully understand how challenging and life-changing his concussion was.
In the courtroom, Paul saw the litigation process often like a person at the bottom of a cliff, catching those who have already jumped. However, as an advisor to family businesses and enterprises, Paul works with each member of the family enterprise system, to help them identify, grasp, and distill the issues at play, and works with them to guide them to their desired outcomes, in both the family, and in the business.
