Paul R. Tobias

Paul R. Tobias Partner, Mergers & Acquisitions and Capital Markets

In his technology practice, Paul Tobias represents companies as they raise capital and execute mergers and acquisitions. Formerly based in Silicon Valley, Paul is one of the premier Texas attorneys in the tech IPO and M&A space. He has taken more Texas tech companies public in the past decade than any other attorney according to IPO Vital Signs, and his work has earned him an array of honors, including a ranking in Chambers USA, where a reviewer praised him as pragmatic, thoughtful and "as good as it gets" (2019).

Paul’s capital markets experience includes working with issuers on initial public offerings for Bazaarvoice, HomeAway, RealPage, SailPoint and SolarWinds. He also has extensive experience in late-stage growth and venture capital financings. Among Paul's proudest achievements is guiding companies from inception into market-leading enterprises. As they expand, he continues to serve their increasingly sophisticated needs, as was the case with HomeAway: Just a few years after launching the company with a series of acquisitions and more than $500 million in venture capital, growth equity and mezzanine debt, Paul represented HomeAway in its IPO and again in its multi-billion dollar acquisition by Expedia. Whether he's working with prominent global businesses or emerging companies creating new markets, Paul is passionate about helping his clients grow and succeed.
