Representative Matters

Patrick Pumphrey aims to prevent legal issues by anticipating and addressing them at an early stage in business and general casualty claims. He understands the time, expenses, and uncertainties associated with litigation and, therefore, works closely with both internal and external legal teams, businesses, including Fortune 500 companies, and individuals to manage risk exposure and safeguard brand reputation. He provides clients with legal and financial guidance, ensures compliance with ever-changing laws and regulations, and drafts and negotiates contracts and agreements so all objectives are satisfied.

In addition to handling complex business disputes, Patrick advises on personal injury matters. Patrick's extensive decade-long tenure representing plaintiffs translates into a robust defense for his clients. He is adept in various forms of investigation, including social media and other modern technologies, and has a talent for finding that needle in a haystack.

Before joining Hinshaw, Patrick bolstered his knowledge and experience with firms in Florida and New York.
