As a government relations specialist, Patrick spends most of his time outside of the office meeting with legislators, executive branch officials, and clients—on their turf—to both learn and educate. Whether its spending the weekend at the Capitol or driving to Thief River Falls for lunch, Patrick represents the interests of his clients wherever, and whenever necessary.

Patrick brings nearly 20 years of legislative and private practice experience to bear on behalf of his clients. Patrick served in the Minnesota Senate for six years in a number of key positions, including policy advisor to the Senate Majority Leader. Patrick understands the nuances of legislative procedure that can be the difference between success and failure during the crush of legislative activity. As the Intergovernmental Relations Counsel at the League of Minnesota Cities, Patrick represented the interests of over 800 cities at the Legislature, and was called to the testimony table many times to explain the potential impacts of bills and legislation. As a private practice attorney, he represented numerous clients in complex construction defect litigation, and provided legal advice and counsel to small businesses, individuals, and local units of government. Patrick enjoys learning the details of his clients’ businesses and organizations and working with them to achieve their goals, whether they relate specifically to legislative work or to the overall success of the organization. He believes that a strong government relations practice is inextricably linked to successful organizations.
