Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.

To say Pete is persistent is an understatement: He focuses all day, every day on bringing his real estate clients great results. And the greater the challenge and more complex the matter, the better. Case in point: After more than four years of intense, complicated work, involving multiple moving parts and players, Pete was able to help a client bring two large-scale renewable energy projects online in Maine.

Pete thrives on solving the seemingly unsolvable, and brings confidence, honesty, and incredible attention to detail to his practice. Whether you’re looking for help with commercial lease negotiations, wind energy and telecommunications development projects, transactional work, boundary disputes, or easement negotiations, Pete’s your man.

But that’s not all. Pete is also very experienced in:

  • Development, financing, and compliance of gaming facilities
  • Advising clients on a wide variety of conservation transactions

In his former life, Pete was:

  • Working for an advertising agency in Brussels
  • A paralegal for two national firms in the Boston area

When Pete isn’t working, he is…

Spending time with his three kids and practicing at the archery range. He also volunteers at his church parish and the Homeless Legal Aid Clinic, and provides French and Latin translation work on various pro bono asylum cases.
