More About Pete

As Seyfarth's chair and managing partner, Pete oversees the firm's operations and is responsible for the leadership, direction, growth, profitability, and culture of the organization. Through all, Pete is focused on ensuring the firm delivers on the legal excellence and cutting-edge approaches clients have come to expect, whether appearing before the US Supreme Court, closing a major transaction, or deploying bots to automate a deal or litigation matter.

Pete has served the firm in a range of leadership roles, giving him a unique window into the operations and talent that fuel Seyfarth's tradition of client service. He has been a member of the firm's executive committee since 2007 and previously chaired the Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation department for a decade, where he also practiced for 20 years.

During his tenure, Seyfarth has enjoyed strong top- and bottom-line growth and has been recognized as one of the "Most Innovative Law Firms" in North America by The Financial Times (2016-2018); and ranks among the "Best-Branded Law Firms" by BTI Consulting (2019).

Always one to embrace new technologies and methodologies, Pete also shaped Seyfarth into an industry leader as a champion for our award-winning multidisciplinary teams at SeyfarthLean Consulting, Seyfarth Labs, and Lean Solutions.

Building on Seyfarth's history as a pioneer in improving the delivery of legal services, Pete is a strong advocate for effective change management, and he enjoys rolling up his sleeves with clients and colleagues to uncover and implement new solutions. Under Pete's leadership, the firm has embraced this role as an agent of change with clients, which has been instrumental to our collective success.

Pete is proud to be at the helm of this welcoming, diverse community of lawyers and professionals around the globe who are empowered to drive change alongside our clients.

"I have spent the last 25 years of my career at Seyfarth, and what I love the most is the selfless teamwork I see every day among people from different practice groups and different offices. Our people support each other, working together to help our clients achieve their goals and nurture a creative and collaborative environment we can all call home."
