The Peter Law Group was founded by Arnold P. Peter who began his legal career in the entertainment industry as Director of Labor Relations for Universal Studios. He was promoted to Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs. He was responsible for the successful negotiation of more than 40 labor agreements with ten unions representing more than 15,000 employees. While at Universal, Mr. Peter became an expert in employment contract negotiations with complicated equity compensation components. He later became a partner and chair of the Entertainment and Media Practice at the international law firm of Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell LLP. The Peter Law Group represents some of the top global media companies and consumer brands in various aspects of filmed entertainment. In particular, the firm serves as counsel to the most prominent United States and Indian companies operating at the intersection between Hollywood and Bollywood.
The Peter Law Group was formed with a vision to offer its elite clients the rare combination of expertise in both litigation and transactional matters. While most law firms have specialized departments, Mr. Peter is one of the few entertainment attorneys accomplished as both a trial lawyer and industry deal-maker. This set of skills allows Mr. Peter to look at contract negotiations with the objective of avoiding a future dispute over the terms and to analyze an existing disagreement with the insight to either solve the dispute or to win the case at the time of trial. This special mix of expertise, knowledge and talent is what sets the Peter Law Group apart and allows them to respond to a variety of client's needs.
