Peterson has practiced in the areas of commercial finance, real estate and general business law for nearly 30 years.  His practice is concentrated in commercial and corporate transactions, including complex real estate transactions involving all aspects of acquisition, finance, development, leasing, operation and disposition of commercial, retail, residential, multi‐family and agricultural property.
