Peter Weishaar Named to The Daily Record's "Power 20 Litigation" List

Dec 27, 2021

Peter J. Weishaar

We are pleased to announce that our Managing Partner, Peter J. Weishaar, was named to The Daily Record's "Power 20 Litigation List" for 2021.  In announcing the list, The Daily Record noted that:

"The people on this list help their clients resolve complex legal matters that often have dire consequences for their financial well-being, whether the client is a business or an individual. These attorneys have also advocated for their clients during a time of unprecedented disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They have had to navigate new rules from federal and state government and the court system and have had to embrace new ways of practicing law."

Peter joined the firm as a litigation attorney more than 25 years ago.  "The best part about being a litigator is that we get to tell our clients' stories."  As Peter explained, "I enjoy the challenge of trying to find the key fact or just the right case precedent that will support a client’s claim, or finding the right theme to use when putting our argument together, so that we can present the client’s story in a compelling, persuasive fashion.  It is most rewarding for me when I am able to distill a complicated topic down to simple, understandable language."

Peter is an experienced trial lawyer, working with businesses, individuals, and municipalities to resolve disputes in state and federal trial and appellate courts, and state and federal administrative agencies, across a broad spectrum of civil litigation matters, including:

  • Business and Contract Disputes;
  • Partnership and Shareholder Disputes;
  • Labor and Employment Matters;
  • Estate Litigation; 
  • Non-Competes and Restrictive Covenants;
  • Land Use and Zoning Matters;
  • Article 78 and Other Government Proceedings; and
  • Tax Assessment Review.
