Biography

Peter is a litigator, counseling and advocating on behalf of clients in three principal areas: (1) financial services litigation; (2) real estate litigation; and (3) general business litigation, with a focus on corporate disputes and heath care litigation. Outside of these three areas of concentration, Peter also regularly represents clients in noncompete agreement, U.C.C.,  fraud, and other business tort litigation matters, as well as the defense of personal injury and insurance bad faith claims.

The breadth of Peter’s litigation practice is complemented by its depth in that he has tried cases to verdict, argued cases on appeal in a number of venues, handled arbitrations, and represented clients at hearings before various Kentucky administrative agencies, including the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services Division of Administrative Hearings and the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals.

In addition to litigating on behalf of his clients, Peter helps them avoid litigation by identifying risks they face in their business, and then developing strategies for avoiding, minimizing and managing those risks.
