Paul Mourning has a multi-dimensional practice focused on health care and not-for-profit organizations as related to corporate, regulatory and transactional matters. Clients include acute care, residential long-term care, home care and hospice providers, as well as managed care and other health insurance organizations. Paul co-chairs Cadwalader's Health Care Industry Team, created to ensure health care clients benefit from the significant synergies that come from the firm's cross-disciplinary approach to client service.

As National Legal Counsel to The Salvation Army, Paul oversees a 90-year Cadwalader relationship, an affiliation that speaks to the firm's commitment to its clients, as well as to the depth and range of Paul's legal capabilities. He advises tax exempt clients in a variety of service areas, including religious organizations, foundations, educational institutions, museums, social service agencies and trade associations. In particular, he has significant experience in the establishment, financing, restructuring and transfer of control of health care and non-profit organizations, as well as in the disposition of assets and structuring and re-structuring of joint ventures. Another specialty is advising non-profit organizations on governance matters that are unique to tax-exempt entities under federal and state law.

Paul heads the firm's law school recruitment efforts as Chair of the Hiring Committee and is currently a Trustee of the College of Mount Saint Vincent. Chambers USA and The Best Lawyers in America consistently recognize his proficiency as a leading health care lawyer. He received his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, where he was Editor-in-Chief of The Virginia Journal of International Law, and his A.B., magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth College. Paul Mourning is admitted to practice in the State of New York and is a member of the New York State Bar Association and American Bar Association.
