Peter J. Smith Named as Finalist in 2024 ALM Legal Awards

AMM partner and business attorney Peter J. Smith attended American Lawyer Media's 2024 Pennsylvania Legal Awards Celebration at the Loew's Hotel in Philadelphia on May 15, 2024. Peter was named one of six finalists for ALM’s 2024 “Most Effective Deal Maker” Award, together with distinguished business attorneys from Dechert, Cozen, Jones Day, Reed Smith and Troutman Pepper. ALM’s Pennsylvania Legal Awards are peer nominated and identify attorneys across the state whose commitment to excellence and dedication to their clients distinguishes them within the legal community.

The Most Effective Deal Maker Award recognizes outstanding legal acumen in the complex world of mergers and acquisitions, and other business transactions. When asked what one piece of advice he would offer to M&A attorneys, Peter replied, “Treat every client like they’re family. Business lawyers often get lost in the complexities of the practice of law and lose sight of the human element of what we do. M&A is a complicated and foreign process for many clients. It is an extremely stressful and emotional time. I try to never lose sight of this. I ask myself “How would I approach this situation if this client were my brother/sister/child?”

Peter has a broad transactional practice focusing on mergers and acquisitions, corporate law, business transactions, private placements, contracts, real estate, commercial finance, business disputes, non-profit organizations, and trusts and estates. He counsels start-up ventures, family-owned businesses, limited liability companies and 501(c)(3) public charities. He also represents individuals and families in estate and business succession planning.
