After being trained by Bochetto & Lentz since law school, Peter Bryant is a tenacious, detail-oriented, and creative litigator. He has been recognized by his clients for his dedication to their cases, his clear evaluation of their goals, and his unwavering commitment to achieving those goals.
Peter’s practice areas focus on civil and appellate litigation. He has extensive experience with construction defect matters, complex commercial litigation, defamation claims, and violations of the False Claims Act.
Peter believes that the purpose of the law is to provide justice for people who have been treated unfairly. As a former educator, he knows that the only way to achieve that is through thorough research, clear communication, and creative thinking. As a result, Peter takes the time to understand the nuances of the client’s dispute, the fundamental unfairness at the root of the dispute, and its effect on the client’s life and business. There is nothing cookie-cutter about Peter’s approach to solving his client’s problems because each matter and each client is fully evaluated for the unique concerns involved. Clients know that Peter’s preparation, research, and synthesis of legal and equitable considerations result in creative and compelling arguments that achieve the desired resolution. As a result of this approach, Peter has challenged long-held legal principles and changed them for the benefit of his clients.
Peter brings this creativity to both negotiation and litigation for the benefit of clients. In his construction defect practice, he has achieved full repair and remediation of defective homes for dozens of homeowners. Peter has also been recognized for his appellate work. In Adams v. Hellings Builders, Inc., Peter persuaded the Superior Court that second-purchasers of residential real estate should be entitled to bring claims against builders for violation of the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law. In SCF Consulting, LLC v. Barrack, Rodos, & Bacine, Peter was instrumental in convincing the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to overturn prior precedent on equitable grounds, and allow an innocent non-attorney to enforce an unlawful agreement entered into with a sophisticated law firm.
