About
I assist companies with international legal issues, primarily relating to China.

I have helped clients from around the world, both private and state-owned, with a wide range of investment/legal matters such as entity formation & administration, tax, compliance, IP protection, distressed debt & collections, and infrastructure & construction.

I am fluent in Mandarin which I rely on heavily during legal research, negotiations, contract drafting, etc. I am also proficient in Spanish and Italian.

"Paul Kossof is one of those simply amazing persons. He speaks English, Italian, Spanish, and Chinese -- each without an accent. He is an efficient and diligent researcher. He is particularly focused and productive -- no other student in the history of The John Marshall Law School published so many articles and TWO BOOKS before graduation. He has also won legal writing awards as a further testament to the quality of his writing. If you are looking for a multicultural, multilingual, and exceptionally competent person, look no further."
