Peter’s practice focuses on general civil litigation with an emphasis on insurance defense and coverage, mass tort litigation and other complex litigation. Since joining Lambert Coffin in 1988, Peter has successfully represented business and individual clients in state and federal courts, in both jury and bench trials. He has appeared at all levels of the federal and state court systems, and before multiple state administrative agencies, including the Workers’ Compensation Board, the Unemployment Board, and several municipal zoning and planning boards.

I belong to a firm that aspires to, and achieves, excellence in the practice of law. The hunger to be the best, and the satisfaction of winning, drives us all to extraordinary efforts for our clients, without regard to the size of the case.

Peter’s clients range from individuals, to small Maine-based businesses, to large multi-national Fortune 500 companies with a Maine presence. He has represented and currently represents pharmaceutical and tobacco companies in class action product liability suits in Maine. Peter regularly handles insurance defense and insurance coverage matters for several large regional and national carriers, and advises on regulatory matters for these clients as well. He also handles the full range of workers’ compensation litigation for several self-insured multinational clients with significant operations in Maine, and frequently counsels clients on employment-related issues.

Peter is a past president and long-time board member of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine. He has an abiding interest in civil rights and civil liberties, and he has significant experience both defending and prosecuting Section 1983 actions. Peter and his partner Phil Coffin currently serve as counsel to the Maine Chiefs of Police, provide annual training to the Chiefs on a range of topics, and regularly represent police and other municipal executives in employment disputes.

While in college, Peter was an amateur boxer and competed in the Golden Glove Competition in Lowell, MA. He then played competitive first side rugby for the Boston Rugby Club and Portland RFC over the next 20 years. He still laces up the boots and gloves on occasion. Peter and his wife Ellen live in Cumberland. They have three children, college age and beyond. Peter recently took a four month sabbatical to hike half the Appalachian Trail with one of them. When not working, Peter and Ellen often are skiing, hiking, biking, or canoeing, and sometimes tending to their garden.
