As a member of the firm’s Board of Directors and a leader of our Client Acquisition and Service Team, Peter Moskowitz plays a key role in the ongoing design and development of the firm’s innovative and forward-thinking approach to client management. As relationship manager for a number of large national and multi-national employers, he leads teams focused on building long-term partnerships and delivering high-value, cost-effective legal service across practices and locations.

He partners with clients on all aspects of their workplace relationships, helping to implement preventive strategies, ensure compliance, and, where necessary, resolve disputes.

In addition to single plaintiff matters, he handles litigations involving multiple plaintiffs as well as class and collective actions. He has conducted arbitrations before AAA, JAMs and FINRA panels. As a member of the Technology, Life Sciences and Financial Services industry groups, Peter is well versed in the workplace issues unique to those industries.
