Pat has represented litigants in the forfeiture and clawback litigation arising from most major fraud cases in Florida, beginning with the 1980s Chase & Sanborn bank frauds, continuing through SIPC liquidations, and many Ponzi schemes in recent years. In the $300 million Rothstein case, he represented a variety of defendants, and exposed three fencing operations in the process. He has tried clawback cases before bankruptcy judges and jury.
