Peter S. Wahby partners with his clients to develop and implement creative strategies across a broad range of disputes, including complex business litigation, financial services litigation and medical device litigation in venues across the country. While some disputes are best resolved with a quick, negotiated agreement, others may require a full adjudication on the merits, or further relief through the appellate courts. Whatever the need, Peter works to develop a value-based approach to ensure that his clients’ costs are not only predictable and controlled, but also leveraged to ensure that their business goals are being aggressively pursued. With proven judgment, based on his first chair trial experience and clerkship at the Supreme Court of Texas, Peter works with his clients to assess how to practically achieve those goals and maintains a continuing, responsive dialogue to ensure that his clients are fully apprised of the dispute status. Peter has wide-ranging experience with a variety of value-based billing approaches to foster long-term partnerships with his clients, regardless of the amount in dispute.
