Before joining our team in 2014, Peter served as legal counsel to a provincial sports federation where he advised senior management specifically on areas of civil and commercial litigation, contract law, administrative law and the protection of personal information. After completing his articling in 2010, Peter practiced with a prominent provincial Crown corporation focusing primarily on civil litigation, where he regularly appeared before various Quebec courts in areas of civil liability, special proceedings, securities and energy theft.

Outside the office, Peter is an avid athlete. In addition to having worked with the World Anti-Doping Agency during an internship focusing mainly on Code compliance and harmonization, he holds a Hockey Canada Level VI referee certification and actively refereed for several seasons in the Quebec Junior Major Hockey League, the highest caliber of hockey in the province before the National Hockey League.
