Here are some of the practice areas we specialize in:

Commercial Litigation

Business Litigation

Operating in state court, federal court, and arbitration proceedings around the globe, Nix Patterson’s attorneys are adept in complicated business and commercial litigation. This might include breach-of-contract cases, insurance coverage disputes, whistleblower litigation, financial fraud, trade secret theft, securities litigation, and many other business-related disputes. Never one to back down from a fight, our talented lawyers have successfully gone toe-to-toe with some of the fiercest and most well-funded law firms and defendants worldwide.

Whistleblower and False Claims Act Litigation

Nix Patterson’s attorneys have successfully prosecuted numerous whistleblower and False Claim Act (FCA) cases and are experienced in handling these complex and delicate matters. If you’re thinking about exposing fraud, discrimination, or sexual harassment, you need an attorney that intimately understands FCA and other whistleblower laws and regulations.

Securities Litigation & Portfolio Monitoring

Nix Patterson represents private and public investors in corporate governance and securities fraud lawsuits. These cases usually involve individuals or institutions who have lost investment funds due to a corporation’s fraud or stock manipulation. Our firm has the resources to handle complex corporate governance and securities cases, from which other firms often walk away.


Antitrust violations include monopolistic schemes, price fixing, and market allocation agreements. Our Austin law firm understands the complex economic and legal issues affecting all market types. This knowledge allows our firm to prosecute anti-competitive practices that violate state and federal unfair competition and antitrust laws.

Intellectual Property

Our Austin law firm has assisted many individuals and small companies in recovering large settlements in compensation for their intellectual property losses. We have experience handling complicated intellectual property cases nationwide, from Washington to Texas and New Mexico. As a result, we have obtained multi-million dollar settlements for our clients.

Governmental and Sovereign Representation

Our attorneys have often represented states, counties, cities, and other sovereigns seeking to gain monetary damages. Nix Patterson possesses the legal experience and knowledge to represent these government entities in often complex litigation.

Injury Litigation

Dangerous Drug and Medical Device Litigation

Thousands of people are injured annually by defective medical devices and prescription drugs. Nix Patterson has a team of skilled mass tort attorneys who represent those who have been hurt by dangerous medical devices, surgical malpractice, and botched pharmaceutical treatments.

These serious cases can involve hundreds or thousands of victims. That is why they are often consolidated into a solitary case before one judge. The judge selects a steering committee to handle the many claims of people killed or injured. Our attorneys have participated in steering committee leadership in many drug and device lawsuits with successful outcomes.

Catastrophic Personal Injury

If you’ve been injured in such a way that your quality of life is significantly diminished, you will need legal representation that will fearlessly fight for you. Our team of catastrophic injury lawyers will help you understand your rights and help you seek the restitution you deserve.

In the last decade, we have assisted injured clients and their families in making substantial recoveries through settlements and verdicts in Texas personal injury cases. These cases included big rig crashes, defective product cases, and sexual abuse covered up by religious institutions.

Toxic Torts and Environmental Disasters

A toxic tort is a lawsuit for personal injury, property damage, or economic damage due to exposure to dangerous chemicals in the environment. Nix Patterson’s lawyers are highly experienced in this area of law, and we have a long history of prosecuting cases stemming from environmental injuries. Our legal team represented residents in the community of Blackwell, Okla., for claims against businesses that contaminated their land with heavy metals and because of the lawsuit, the negligent parties paid tens of millions to injured Oklahoma property owners.

Work With the A-Team

At Nix Patterson, we are committed to providing our clients with dedicated and professional representation.
