Peter is a principal in our Business Law Group, where he works with institutional and private lenders and corporate and Indigenous clients of all sizes.

He enjoys the personal side of his practice, getting to know his clients, their businesses, and their needs.


Peter practices banking, corporate, and commercial law, with a particular focus on secured lending transactions, project finance, partnership and joint venture transactions, corporate restructurings, mergers and acquisitions, and other complex commercial transactions and matters.

Peter is a proud father of two children and two fine pups.
