It is with heavy hearts that we share news of the passing of our friend and colleague, David Swenson. David joined Patterson Thuente IP as the Chair of our Litigation Practice just three months before learning of the health challenge that would so quickly take his life. Some of us had the privilege of knowing David professionally over the years. Many of us did not. But we all cherish the short time we did have to get to know David, enjoy his light-up-the-room personality, and admire his intellect and abilities as a lawyer.
