With a master’s degree in regional land use planning, Patrick is uniquely suited to advise clients on securing appropriate governmental approvals to move real estate development projects forward. His planning background makes him well versed in zoning and land use issues, including the creation and administration of restrictive covenants and the contractual relationships that govern leading commercial, residential and mixed-use developments in the Triangle.
Patrick has worked on several Transit-Oriented Development projects, focusing on high density residential (50-80 dwellings per acre) and mixed-use developments that combine commercial, office and residential uses. He previously worked at K&L Gates; Kennedy, Covington, Lobdell & Hickman; and Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice.
Patrick has lived in Durham for 25 years, and now serves as Vice-Chair of the Board for Discover Durham, our community’s convention and visitor’s bureau, so he takes great pride in welcoming you to Durham.
There is a reason why God gave us two ears and one mouth.
