Our Areas of Practice

Nix Patterson is one of the most well-respected law firms across the country. We have a talented team of lawyers with years of experience in personal injury and complex commercial litigation ready to help the residents of Santa Fe. Our personal injury areas of practice include:

Truck Accidents

The sheer size and weight of large commercial trucks make their accidents more devastating than passenger car crashes. Accidents involving these vehicles usually have greater damage, more severe injuries, and higher chances of death.

The truck accident lawyers at Nix Patterson know all about the complications involved in truck accidents in Santa Fe, especially in proving negligence or the party responsible. Fortunately, we have the experience and resources to pursue your case and protect your rights and interests.

Oilfield Accidents

While oil is a popular industry in the state, oilfields present some of the most dangerous work environments in the U.S. Workers in this industry experience intense labor conditions and lengthy hours, risking their lives because of over-exertion, defective equipment, a lack of training, unregulated safety protocols, and other preventable causes.

With high rates of accidents and injuries in oilfields, it is important to learn the hazards of this line of work as well as your legal rights should the worst happen. Our team has been handling oilfield cases in New Mexico and nationwide for decades and will help you create a solid claim. We will conduct thorough investigations to determine what caused the accident, whether the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety guidelines were followed, and who was responsible.

Dangerous Drug and Medical Device Litigation

Every year, thousands of individuals fall victim to the harmful effects of prescription drugs and medical devices. These complex cases often impact hundreds or even thousands of victims and are sometimes consolidated into class action cases. To effectively manage the numerous claims of those affected, the judge appoints a steering committee.

Nix Patterson has a highly talented team of dangerous drug and device attorneys who fight for the rights of those who have been harmed by these dangerous products. We also have a rich history of playing a leading role on steering committees in many high-stakes drug and device lawsuits, making us an ideal fit.

Catastrophic Injuries

While most injuries are almost always traumatic, some leave you with long-term, life-changing results. Known as catastrophic injuries, these injuries may affect how you operate physically, hindering you from doing your everyday activities, going to work, and even meeting your goals.

We know that catastrophic injuries can change your life instantly, and that’s why we have an experienced team to handle such cases. Our law firm will evaluate your case, determine whether you have a claim, help you prove negligence, handle negotiations with insurance companies, and even represent you in court if necessary.

Sexual Abuse

The thought of it is deeply distressing, but the reality is that numerous children and young adults have been subjected to sexual abuse at the hands of trusted individuals. Nix Patterson stands up for the rights of these abused children.

Our lawyers are committed to helping our clients heal and seek justice, and we will not tolerate any attempt by a religious organization, its staff, or any other entity to ignore or cover up these devastating crimes.

Insurance Disputes

Catastrophic weather events including storms, tornadoes, wildfires, and heavy winds can cause extensive damage to Sante Fe homes. Homeowners’ insurance is supposed to provide you with peace of mind when these disasters strike. Unfortunately, insurance companies often look for ways to deny or underpay claims in these circumstances.

If you believe your insurance company is not handling your claim fairly, Nix Patterson can help.

Commercial Litigation

Nix Patterson also handles business disputes and litigation in Santa Fe, including:

Class Actions

When you buy a product, you expect it to function as advertised and intended. That is true regardless of whether it is an affordable household item or an expensive purchase like a car. However, businesses often engage in deceptive practices and produce substandard goods that pose health and safety risks to consumers. The class action attorneys at Nix Patterson can help you if you’ve been harmed by shoddy products or services. We represent large groups of people — a “class” — in disputes such as those involving dangerous drugs, automobile defects, data breaches, and unsafe lending practices.

Securities and Portfolio Monitoring

Even though most market losses are out of the control of your brokerage firm or broker, there are times when the negligence or fraudulent activities of such parties lead to huge losses in the securities market. The securities lawyers at Nix Patterson can advise you on your ability to recover losses if a third party mismanages your investments or adopts incorrect execution strategies. Here are some of the instances where you may be able to hold third parties liable in a securities fraud case:
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Elder abuse
  • Market manipulation
  • Unauthorized trading
  • Execution errors
  • Failure to diversify
  • Churning
  • Breach of contract
  • Fraud
  • Violation of federal securities laws and Blue Sky Laws

Whistleblower and False Claims Act Litigation

Nix Patterson is one of the nation’s leading law firms, representing persons and entities who uncover fraud and step forward to expose such wrongdoing. Our lawyers have prior experience representing federal and state governments and a passion for fighting fraud. We have a long track record in whistleblower cases, including a $72.3 million settlement by the Oklahoma Center for Orthopaedic and Multi-Specialty Surgery (OCOM), Southwest Orthopaedic Specialists, PLLC (SOS), and two SOS physicians to resolve false submission claims to the TRICARE, Medicaid, and Medicare programs.

Governmental and Sovereign Representation

At Nix Patterson, we take pride in being able to advise sovereigns, states, countries, and cities on policy matters and political issues. We also litigate cases in federal and state courts on behalf of these parties, fighting to help them recoup financial damages. For example, Nix Patterson was able to secure a $186 million settlement in a case between the Choctaw Nation and the Chickasaw Nation versus the United States government.

Antitrust Litigation

Clients across industries rely on our antitrust litigation group to handle state and federal litigation, arbitrations, appeals, class actions, and multidistrict litigation. Our antitrust lawyers devise creative solutions that meet our clients’ needs and interests in antitrust claims involving:
  • Unfair competition
  • Monopolization
  • Franchisor-franchisees disputes
  • Merger and joint venture transactions
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Group boycotts
  • Price-fixing conspiracies

Intellectual Property

Protecting and leveraging your intellectual property assets helps your organization enjoy a competitive advantage and benefit from its creations, such as inventions, designs, and artistic works. If you need advice on patents, trademarks, rights to confidential information, copyright, database rights, and design rights, Nix Patterson’s intellectual property lawyers will be by your side. We’re also prepared to litigate IP-related cases due to infringement claims.
