What keeps his clients up at night keeps Peter up at night.
Having served as the General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer of a buy-side investment firm earlier 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. Clients refer to Peter as “an exceptional lawyer” who “combines an excellent business sense with a strong legal background.”
Dividing his time between representing well-pedigreed hedge fund managers launching their first funds and top-50 (by AUM) managers, Peter enjoys the differing needs of these two client bases. He advises clients 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 experience in advising clients with respect to insider trading determinations, including with respect to the purchase, analysis, and use of alternative/big data. In all of these areas, Peter strives to be a business-minded, solutions-oriented counselor.
Recognized as one of America’s Leading Lawyers for Business by Chambers USA for his work in the areas of Investment Funds and Hedge Funds, Peter is known for his insight and dedication to his clients and their businesses. Business Insider recently recognized Peter as one of “the 29 bankers, advisors, and lawyers to know if you’re thinking about starting your own hedge fund.”
Peter serves on the Board of Directors of the Managed Funds Association (MFA), the leading trade association for the hedge fund and global alternative investment industry. He is also Chairperson of the Board of Directors of The Acceleration Project, a female-founded, female-led business advisory non-profit dedicated to keeping local economies vital and channeling talent into the economy.
