Peter Gallagher is an accomplished litigator with experience representing clients in commercial disputes, and counseling clients on various issues in an effort to mitigate potential problems before they become the subject of litigation.  Over the course of his career, Pete has represented clients at the trial and appellate levels in state and federal courts in both New York and New Jersey.  As a generalist, he has enjoyed a wide-ranging practice  requiring flexibility to respond to the ever-changing needs of clients faced with business disputes in divergent fields including real estate, telecommunications, financial services, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare.   At Porzio, Pete has continued to focus his practice on general commercial litigation, while also representing the firm’s real estate clients in matters involving commercial lease litigation, real estate contract disputes, prerogative writs, and zoning appeals.  Regardless of the engagement, his approach is detail-oriented and focused on understanding the clients’ business objectives and working with clients to achieve their goals cost-effectively and efficiently.   

An avid writer, Pete has authored articles for publications ranging from the New Jersey Law Journal to journals at the Georgetown University Law Center and the Seton Hall University Law School.   He is also the editor, and one of the primary bloggers, on Porzio’s real estate blog, Porzio Real Property Blog.

In addition, since 2005, Pete has helped teach the next generation of legal writers as an adjunct professor of Legal Research and Writing at the Seton Hall University School of Law.  In recognition of his work at the law school, he was nominated for Adjunct Professor of the Year 2011.
