Partner

Patrick’s Computer Science degree and time spent as an Embedded Software Engineer at Boeing are foundational to his technical expertise in computer hardware and software. Over the past decade, Patrick has continued developing his technical expertise by working for numerous world-leading clients on a variety of their cutting-edge technologies, including technologies for eBay, Dexcom, Adobe, and Microsoft. His areas of expertise cover computer hardware and software (including artificial intelligence and machine learning), medical devices, and mechanical technologies.

Patrick is one of the founders of FIG. 1 and envisions breaking the mold to deliver something new and different to patent law. Something more like a startup than a law firm. FIG. 1 is built on the notion that if the business is optimized from the ground up—from the people to the business processes to the physical building itself—to focus on patent preparation and prosecution, then FIG. 1 can be the best patent law firm in the world.

In addition, Patrick serves as a member of the Board of Advisors at Gonzaga University’s School of Law and is a back-to-back Super Lawyers Rising Star (2019 and 2020). He is also one of the founders of Farmgirlfit, a gym designed specifically for women.

Over the last few years, Patrick has become a hobbyist pitmaster and enjoys smoking meat on his Big Green Egg.
