Client Comments

"Peter is a terrific real estate lawyer. He is very knowledgeable. He's excellent at drafting real estate documents or real estate related provisions in other transaction agreements. He is very good at problem solving and a terrific team player who gets along great not only with the client but with the "other side" too. He is incredibly responsive to boot."

"Peter is exceptionally responsive to my company as a client. He works well with both me as in-house counsel and my business clients. His calm manner works well in all settings and puts his clients at ease. We appreciate his "solution-oriented" approach."

"Counselor McLean III is one of the brightest real estate law practitioners I've experienced in my 35 years in the business. He is just excellent and cares deeply about his clients and doing the right thing. In our experience, most of individuals with the real estate and environmental teams for KLG are generally this way. I know of no other real estate attorney that I would trust as implicitly as I do Peter, he is just excellent."
