Peter
Eirikson

Principal, Business Law + Transactions Group | Indigenous Law Group

Contact

Peter joins MT+Co. after practicing in the areas of banking, corporate finance and commercial law at a national corporate law firm in Vancouver, spending time at a credit union secondment, and practicing corporate finance and corporate and commercial law at a large firm in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

When we first met Peter, we knew his interests in reading, writing, music and food would make him a great addition to our team. The fact that he’s passionate about secured lending and mergers and acquisitions makes him the total package.

Why MT+Co.?

“I knew MT+Co’s reputation for taking a radically different approach to providing first-class legal advice for years before I joined the firm. What I didn’t expect was how great the people are. This is a group of impressive lawyers and professionals who are also warm and modest. They are dedicated to the law and providing legal services in a new way, but they’re also unguarded, friendly and approachable.”

Expertise

Peter is a member of the Business Law + Transactions and Indigenous Law practice groups at MT+Co. His practice focuses on corporate and commercial law, with particular focuses on secured lending transactions, project finance, complex commercial transactions, and First Nations economic development matters.

Peter acts for financial institutions and industry and First Nations clients across all sectors, including in the financial, energy, natural resource, agricultural, real estate, restaurant, clothing, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and cannabis industries.

Worth Noting

Peter is a proud father of two children and two mutts. When he had spare time (ie. before kids), he enjoyed exercise (particularly long-distance running, yoga, and biking), reading (and sometimes attempting, poorly, to write) fiction, making sourdough bread, trying to keep his bad dogs from barking and learning stuff from his smart wife. A survivor of the “Two Under Two” club, Peter now explores local playgrounds and takeout food options.
