Patrick Tickner


Patrick joined Wright Connatser as a 2014 graduate of Drake University Law School, after graduating cum laude with a Political Science degree from the University of North Texas in 2010, where he also studied jazz bass. Already, Patrick has demonstrated proficiency and a passion for finding creative, reliable and efficient solutions to his clients’ needs. He is fast becoming an expert in all aspects of structuring businesses and transactions.

Specifically, Patrick has experience forming non-profits and for-profit business organizations and advising clients on matters related to private placements, fund formation and other forms of capital formation, mergers & acquisitions, and impact investment. Patrick applies his expertise to help entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses, social entrepreneurs, and the investors who support them. Patrick believes businesses are uniquely capable of creating good in their communities, and he enjoys his work most when he is coming up with creative business and deal structures or helping clients maximize their social impact.

Outside of the office, Patrick is a proud member of the Social Venture Partners Dallas Dana Juett Residency 2017-2018 cohort.

When he isn’t practicing law, Patrick enjoys searching pawn shops for vintage Fender basses, exploring new cities (while continuing his never-ending exploration of Dallas), playing golf and tennis, and hiking and camping with friends.
