Four years ago our Managing Principal, Peter Moran, established a boutique commercial law firm with a focus on bringing innovation to legal practice, client services and workplace culture. This passion has seen Peer Legal develop a fantastic client base full of interesting people and businesses who we’ve seen thrive and grow. We are so proud to be celebrating our 4th birthday this week, and look forward to continuing to deliver commercial, responsive and innovative legal services that are best-in-class.
