  • Profile

I’m a problem solver. Clients want to get from point A to point B, and I enjoy getting into the details of a transaction and plotting a path to get us there.
— Patrick Sheets

Patrick Sheets has broad corporate and transactional law experience, representing clients across various industries with respect to the formation, acquisition, reorganization, and disposition of businesses. He has been instrumental in assisting clients with the negotiation and drafting of operating agreements, purchase agreements, and loan agreements, and has assisted many clients with debt and equity financing and restructuring.

Patrick graduated summa cum laude from South Texas College of Law in 2012 and received his Master of Laws in Taxation from New York University in 2014. Prior to law school, Patrick earned bachelor’s degrees in mathematics and government at The University of Texas, and considers his transactional law practice a natural extension of his analytical, problem-solving skills. Patrick has interned for MD Anderson Cancer Center, Rice University, Children at Risk, the IRS Office of Chief Counsel, Congressman Michael T. McCaul, and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Patrick has traveled extensively, including participating in a study-abroad program led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts at the University of Malta. An avid baseball fan, he has visited 26 Major League ballparks and the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Patrick enjoys spending free time with his friends, family, and his newborn son, Max.
