About
Entrepreneurial minded attorney with big law experience who left the law firm life to escape the billable hour and focus on providing guidance on a project basis. My practice focuses on advising entrepreneurs, companies and investors on issues including incorporation, seed and venture financings, strategic transactions, corporate governance issues and general questions that arise during the day-to-day operation of a business.

Prior to practicing law, I was a member of the senior management team of a startup that successfully navigated an FDA Class I recall, raised more than $40M and entered into a range of complex agreements. Based on
… read more those experiences I understand the guidance business professionals need. If you are looking for an attorney that cares about understanding your company’s risk profile in order to provide tailored legal advice I can help. My goal is to help people understand the legal risks associated with different decisions and business transactions so they can make informed decisions about acceptable and unacceptable risks.

I am a member of the California Bar and have a JD/MBA from the University of Virginia.

"Peter was very accessible and easy to speak with. When it comes to equity compensation, there are a lot of terms that are unknown to most unless you know to ask for them and Peter was great in helping me navigate through it all. For any future related needs, I'll definitely be keeping in touch with Peter."
