William received numerous accolades from global clients who thanked him for being client focused, while delivering what our organization needed, and for simplifying otherwise complex legal documents. William made himself available without notice to speak directly to clients to provide clarification and to resolve any issues. William was eager to take the contractual load off of my shoulders, enabling me to serve other needs for clients. I thoroughly enjoyed working with William and always found him receptive to feedback and new ideas.

William is a very talented attorney who brings a unique blend of top-notch education and legal experience with a practical real-world approach and perspective. William does a great job of keeping the objectives and interests of his clients in mind during an engagement. He very quickly comes up to speed on complex issues and does a great job of representing the legal and business considerations with multiple alternative paths forward. In addition to being a very talented and effective attorney, William is great personally - with a great sense of humor and a very grounded and realistic perspective. I recommend him most highly for work that could range from "standard" transactional work around contracts and agreements to more complex one-off legal issues that require robust independent thinking.

William has been an indispensable asset in the launch of my new business.
He fully understood my issues and was very clear and direct. He helped me to understand my specific risks
and had clear suggestions on how to minimize my risk so that my business could move forward.
William was fast and responsive to my needs. His attention to detail and creative solutions to my complex problems
really made me feel as though he had a vested interest in the success of my business.
I recommend William enthusiastically and would use his firm again without hesitation.

William is a "walking solution" as we call him - an honest, clever, hard working lawyer committed to reaching agreements rather than prolonging conflict. Conversations with William are highly productive - and result in creative solutions rather than focusing on the barriers ahead. It is a pleasure doing business with him and I would recommend him enthusiastically.

When looking for a lawyer you need to get someone who understands business as much as they do the law. They need to wear both hats and be clear about which hat is driving a recommendation. William Paxton is one of those rare breeds who can do both well. Beyond that William is outstanding in all the things you need in your counsel - he listens well, is responsive, smart and thorough. He is clear in his communication. He doesn’t waste time and focuses on the options while minimizing risk to the business. All the while William maintains is calm and is just a good guy to work with.
I have worked with and recommended William several times and will continue to do so in the future.
