What keeps his clients up at night keeps Peter up at night.

Peter is insightful, commercial, and dedicated to his clients and their businesses. Having served as the General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer of a buy-side investment firm early in his career, Peter has a unique understanding of his clients’ goals and the nature of their interactions with investors, regulators, auditors, administrators, employees, and outside counsel.

Peter divides his time between representing top-50 (by assets under management) hedge fund managers and well-pedigreed managers launching their first funds; he enjoys the differing needs of these two client bases. Clients benefit from Peter’s candor and experience. He advises them on the formation and structuring of funds and management companies, compliance and regulatory matters, and executive and employee compensation (on both the manager and employee sides). He also has particular expertise in advising clients with respect to insider trading determinations. In all these areas, Peter strives to be a business-minded, solutions-oriented counselor.
