“Confrontation and disputes exist in business. My role is to help our clients address and resolve disputes whether before litigation starts, during litigation or through trial and appeal.”
Clients seeking confident and knowledgeable counsel for any type of business dispute seek counsel from Patrick. Patrick represents clients with all types of business disputes. He also represents clients in eminent domain matters and government procurement matters, and in tax disputes. When taking on a case, Patrick analyzes each matter based on the complexity and severity of the problem and the possible resolutions. He understands that each client and case are unique, and that lawsuits can disrupt business. So, before determining a plan of action, Patrick works with his clients to understand their goals and to decide which path toward resolution is the best.
Case Studies / Success Story:
Patrick views each of his clients’ successes as important. One example of a success is a client who was sued over the enforceability of a number of contracts. The opposing side had freely entered into the agreements, but when the market changed, it wanted out. After reviewing the materials, Patrick, with the help of other McGrath North lawyers, advised the client on a litigation strategy. The client agreed and went with the plan, ultimately winning the case. The decision validated the client’s decisions and helped the client to receive the compensation it deserved.
