About me

Over the past ten years, Patrick R. Tira gained extensive litigation experience in matters involving a wide variety of complex real estate and business disputes, ranging from post-foreclosure evictions and real estate fraud to misappropriation of trade secrets claims and shareholder disputes. 


Mr. Tira is experienced in all stages of litigation, including motion practice, depositions and other discovery, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and trial. Mr. Tira has recovered millions for his clients in judgments and arbitration awards, in addition to resolving most disputes with demurrers and motions to dismiss. 


In addition to his success in the courtroom, Mr. Tira advises internet and other technology companies, real estate investors, medical professionals, and other businesses on an array of transactional matters.  For example, he has extensive experience counseling clients on entity formation, licensing and service agreements, real estate agreements, internal policies and procedures, and related matters.  Mr. Tira employs his litigation experience to appropriately structure internal policies and procedures, licensing and service agreements, ownership and other agreements, and also to anticipate where disputes may arise in the future.  Mr. Tira strives to enable his clients to achieve their goals and to avoid potential litigation.
