Patrick Everman, attorney in the firm’s Jackson office and member of the Corporate & Commercial Practice, has been selected for participation in Mississippi Economic Council’s 2023 Class of Leadership Mississippi, a program with the mission of developing and maintaining a network of Mississippians committed to strengthening the state's quality of life.

Leadership Mississippi is an annual program of the Mississippi Economic Council conducted by the M.B. Swayze Foundation. Participants, selected by a committee of MEC’s Leadership Mississippi Alumni, work together in a training program that combines individual study, group sessions, and project experience in using leadership skills. Leadership Mississippi is the second oldest statewide leadership program in the nation. Since its inception in 1974, Leadership Mississippi has graduated more than 1,300 alumni active in Mississippi business and politics. 

Leadership Mississippi's objectives are to identify Mississippians who have demonstrated leadership potential through job-related and community activities, to train participants by sharpening their leadership skills and to motivate participants by increasing awareness of community and state challenges and involving participants in problem-solving activities on issues of current interest.

Patrick’s corporate-driven practice focuses primarily on corporate formation, structuring and reorganization, M&A, real estate, title, and transactions. Patrick mainly represents large and small privately held companies in a variety of corporate matters and transactions, including clients in industries such as hardwood mat production, trucking and logistics, private equity, healthcare, addiction recovery, hospitality, wastewater treatment and utility companies. Patrick has substantial experience in corporate and transactional matters and devotes a portion of his practice to outside counsel representation, as well as commercial real estate and title issues.

He has been named to the Ones to Watch list by The Best Lawyers in America® annually since 2021.
