Leading Environmental Lawyer Paul R. McIntyre Returns to Greenberg Traurig in Philadelphia

Paul McIntyre

PHILADELPHIA, PA—Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP recently welcomed back Paul R. McIntyre to its Environmental Practice in the firm’s Philadelphia office.

McIntyre returns to Greenberg Traurig after nearly 10 years, along with Michael P. Canavan, who will join the firm as of counsel. They both join from Post & Schell, P.C., where McIntyre served as both a principal and chair of that firm’s environmental practice, and Canavan played a leading role in the growth of the group.

McIntyre focuses his practice on environmental counseling and due diligence for real estate and corporate transactions. He also helps structure remedial scopes of work and insurance tools for brownfield remediation and redevelopment projects, and regularly advises clients on related regulatory compliance matters.

McIntyre and Canavan and the three associates accompanying them – Julie Dostal, Molly K. O’Neil, and Travis Coon – represent one of the largest groups to join the Philadelphia office in more than a decade.

Barred in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, McIntyre is admitted in the 3rd Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and the District of New Jersey. He holds degrees from Elon University and the Vermont Law and Graduate School, where he earned both a J.D. and a master’s in environmental law.

Canavan’s practice and client base closely mirrors that of McIntyre, having worked alongside him as a principal in their prior firm’s environmental practice group. Prior to that post, he worked as an associate in the New York office of Alston & Bird LLP. The Germantown Academy alum is an honors graduate of Wake Forest University and The George Washington University Law School. Admitted in the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern District and the Southern District of New York, Canavan is barred in both Pennsylvania and New York. He will split his time between the firm’s Philadelphia and Silicon Valley offices.

Dostal holds degrees from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Virginia School of Law, graduating in 2019. O’Neil, a twice-minted Wildcat, is a 2020 graduate of the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law. And Coon, who graduated from Michigan State University and Penn State Law, also earned his J.D. in 2020.
