Peter specializes in defending developers and builders and in insurance coverage advice. Peter also defends clients involved in federal CERCLA litigation, product liability and personal injury suits, extra contractual disputes, employment claims, and contract interpretation disputes. In representing both developers and builders, as well as primary and excess carriers in complex litigation, Peter has extensive expertise in the construction defect arena and all aspects of general liability.

Peter has litigated construction defect allegations, claims of equitable contribution, subrogation, and declaratory relief, including a recent trial victory for an intervening excess carrier against an apartment owner and an underlying primary insurer.

Peter’s philosophy has always been the same; achieve specific client objectives in the most efficient manner possible. To that end, Peter works to resolve cases early on, but will litigate through trial, if necessary.
