Chair, Corporate Department

Peter’s work for high-stakes corporate clients combines strategic thinking, creative solutions, and old-fashioned common sense. Clients say he’s “in a league of his own: outstanding in every respect, extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful and very hardworking” (Chambers).

Peter represents issuers in private and public offerings of debt and equity securities, as well as acquirers and sellers of businesses. He also counsels public companies in regard to compliance and public reporting responsibilities, including duties under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other corporate governance reforms. 

Peter’s success in these areas stems from an unflagging commitment to his clients’ business success. He maintains hands-on control of each transaction, weighing dozens of options to determine the strategy that will lead to the best outcome. Clients laud his responsiveness, accessibility, and caring attitude. Many stay with him for the long term, through multiple companies and positions.

A proactive leader, Peter was a mentor to the founder of Lowenstein’s Tech Group and helped champion the firm’s Patent Department early on. He currently serves as chair of the firm’s corporate department.
