Nix Patterson’s Areas of Practice

Commercial Litigation

Nix Patterson is known for successfully dealing with cases revolving around commercial litigation. Examples of areas of practice we handle in this domain include:

Business Litigation

When it comes to running a business, disputes and other issues are inevitable. While good planning can help you avoid most legal issues, you’ll likely have to engage in litigation at some point. Even for simple matters like internal disputes, it is advisable to seek the legal counsel of a seasoned commercial lawyer.  At Nix Patterson, we help business clients with their legal challenges, including business formation, partnership, and employee disputes. We work tirelessly for our clients, using innovative legal tools and our firm’s resources. As one of the best law firms in the country, we are readily available to protect your rights and business interests in Houston.

Intellectual Property (IP)

To ensure your organization’s IP is protected in the U.S. and internationally, you’ll require a firm with in-depth experience in all aspects of intellectual property law and the capability to handle any matter that may come up. Our experienced Houston lawyers are talented and skilled in helping clients identify, protect, manage, and defend different kinds of IP assets. From trademarks, copyrights, and patent assets to data privacy, domain name issues, privacy rights, and trade secrets, we are experienced in all kinds of IP laws.

Whistleblower and False Claims Act Litigation

Nix Patterson’s lawyers work on cases involving defense contractor fraud, Medicare fraud, and other types of fraud for the federal and state governments. Under the False Claims Act (FCA) and similar state whistleblower laws, citizens are encouraged to report any suspicions of people or companies attempting to defraud the government. Our lawyers work hand in hand with whistleblowers all over the U.S. to build cases against the preparators to show that they are engaged in activities like tax fraud and evasion, securities fraud, and money laundering. 

Securities Litigation and Portfolio Monitoring

Securities laws are complex, and you need the help of an experienced team of Houston lawyers to navigate this area of law. That’s where we come in. At Nix Patterson, we protect the interests of both private and public investors in corporate governance and securities fraud cases. Our experienced trial lawyers can litigate virtually any kind of securities claim.


Nix Patterson’s antitrust litigation practice handles complex cases involving alleged civil violations of state and federal antitrust laws in Houston and across the country. We represent clients in commercial litigation and class actions, fighting for them to get injunctive relief under the federal Robinson-Patman, Sherman, and Clayton Acts. Our Houston lawyers also have experience litigating antitrust claims arising from mergers and acquisitions, manufacturer-retailer relations, and unfair advertising, pricing, and marketing practices. 

Governmental and Sovereign Representation

As counsel to cities, counties, states, political subdivisions, and other sovereigns, Nix Patterson understands how law, public relations, diplomacy, and politics come together during complex deals and high-profile disputes. Our practice combines extensive professional experience and world-class resources to handle governmental and sovereign disputes. We provide in-depth legal and policy insights, putting our negotiating skills to work to help our Houston clients when they face such delicate situations.

Injury Litigation

The team at Nix Patterson takes pride in its experience and successful litigation record when it comes to injury cases. We help injured victims and their families navigate different personal injury cases, including:

Catastrophic Injury

Suffering a catastrophic injury, be it in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, the use of dangerous products, or toxic exposure, can result in significant medical bills and loss of income. If someone else is responsible for your injury, you shouldn’t have to bear the burden alone. The responsible party and their insurance company should finance your medical treatment as well as other damages. Nix Patterson is here to fight for you and push to make this a reality.

Over the last decade, we have helped accident victims in Houston and all over Texas become “whole” again through favorable settlements and verdicts. We understand that money won’t undo your traumatic experience, but it could go a long way in helping you recover. 

Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices

Pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars every year making and promoting their products to Houston residents. Their adverts tell us that our health issues are holding us back from healthier, more fulfilling, and better lives. But what if their drugs and medical devices don’t improve the quality of our lives, but rather, harm us?

Nix Patterson takes on such device and drug makers. We have the experience, track record, and resources needed to represent individual plaintiffs or large groups in cases against medical companies.

Toxic Tort and Environmental Disasters

When businesses plan operations that involve discharges to bodies of water, emissions, and releases on land, they should do so in a way that doesn’t harm residents, wildlife, their habitats, or the environment. Our experienced attorneys offer Houston residents a client-oriented approach when navigating disputes concerning regulatory enforcement, class actions, mass torts, citizen lawsuits, multidistrict litigation, and other complex matters. Nix Patterson has the resources and experience to deal with high-stakes cases that involve alleged water, air, and soil pollution in Houston.

Sexual Abuse

It is a devastating reality that numerous children and young adults are subjected to sexual abuse at the hands of trusted individuals in places they should be safe, such as places of worship. Nix Patterson is dedicated to standing up for the rights of these abused children in Houston.

We are committed to helping our clients heal and refuse to tolerate attempts by any religious organization or its staff to ignore or cover up these severe crimes.
