"I learn what resources and critical introductions my clients need and try to help them get to those resources and meet those people. I want my clients to succeed, because if they do, I will not only be their lawyer for a long time, but we generally will be good friends."

Michael Patterson specializes in helping businesses resolve their legal needs cost-effectively by quickly identifying key issues, focusing the right expert resources, and executing on the plan.

Mike understands his clients have a business to run successfully and that the legal side is only one of many challenges to be profitable and compete in their marketplace.

A business lawyer with special expertise in securities and international issues, he sees himself as part of the client’s team and tries to provide alternatives where possible understanding that at any given time in a dynamic marketplace, all legal alternatives have strategic and economic cost and benefit that the client must weigh.

Mike, also known as "Miguel" as he lived and worked in Latin America for more than 10 years (Costa Rica, Leon, Mexico City), reads, writes, speaks, and negotiates in Spanish. His international experience goes far beyond Latin America – in the last two years he has assisted clients with needs in Asia, Eastern/Western Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and all over Latin America and the Caribbean.
