Though an insolvency professional by trade, Patrick is a generalist at heart and takes a holistic approach to serving clients, working collaboratively with clients and other outside professionals to understand the big picture, and providing counsel at every stage of the engagement, from advising on strategic planning, conducting deal negotiation and legal drafting, to managing motion practice and undertaking litigation. He is particularly adept at handling complex or nuanced legal issues and is a “go-to” resource on important and novel matters for clients, co-counsel and colleagues alike.
From 2005-06, Patrick served as a law clerk to the Honorable Mary F. Walrath, then Chief Judge, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
Outside of the courtroom, Patrick is a regular contributor to legal periodicals such as the ABI Journal and the Federal Lawyer, and his work has been cited by several courts and legal commentators. In law school he was a staff writer (2004) and later editor-in-chief (2005) of the Uniform Commercial Code Reporter-Digest, a commercial publication that analyzed and indexed UCC-related decisions from the state and federal courts.
Patrick enjoys playing guitar, songwriting and recording, in addition to "biohacking" and strength training, and technology and gaming.
