Professional Bio:

Peter engages in a diverse legal practice of both litigation and corporate/transactional law. Peter's practice is complimentary, as he guides clients through complex transactions, anticipating and protecting against the issues and pitfalls he encounters through his litigation practice.

Peter focuses his corporate practice in mergers and acquisitions, primarily in the professional services industries. As part of Lawson & Weitzen's transaction team Peter has helped close over 25 acquisitions in the past two years. Recently, Peter ran his first solo deal, where he represented the buyer in its acquisition of a tech startup firm.

Through his M&A work in the professional services industries, Peter has obtained a significant level of expertise in licensure matters for architecture, professional engineering, land surveying and geology firms throughout the United States.

Peter's litigation practice focuses on complex business disputes, both plaintiff and defense-side. Peter is also a member of Lawson & Weitzen's team representing members of each of the three tiers of the alcoholic beverage industry. Peter has appeared before the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission countless times in connection with his representation of alcoholic beverage suppliers and wholesalers. Peter has received several favorable decisions from the Commission, and has overturned Commission precedent through an administrative appeal before the Massachusetts Superior Court.

Peter uses the skills he has developed through his transactional work to find the best resolution for any given matter, with many of his cases resulting in favorable settlements for his clients. While Peter has resolved many of his cases through settlement and mediation, Peter is not afraid to take cases to trial. While litigating at Lawson & Weitzen and at his fellowship, Peter has prepared several cases for trial, and has tried cases in the Massachusetts Superior Court.
