Chair, Corporate Department

Peter Ehrenberg is the kind of hands-on, always-reachable lawyer who literally takes his clients’ problems home with him — "I'd rather have them call me on a Friday evening than let them worry all weekend." An experienced corporate lawyer who spends most of his time on M&A, securities transactions and corporate governance, Peter is valued by clients for his common sense, his uncommon accessibility and his tendency to take their issues personally.

Peter looks at transactions as a "chess match," in which he needs to be several steps ahead of the other side at all times. In each deal, while there may be dozens of alternatives to weigh — some riskier than others — Peter is particularly adept at narrowing them down to the two or three that really matter and negotiating accordingly.

His clients count on him to know what they can expect in each situation — or in his words, “What do people usually ask for, and what do they usually get?” His ability to answer from his wide range of experience, coupled with his unusually caring attitude, goes a long way toward explaining why so many of these clients stay with him for the long term — some for decades, some through multiple companies and positions — which he finds especially gratifying.
