About Peter Pietraszek
Peter joined UL Law as an associate after working with a prominent downtown Toronto insurance defence litigation firm. In his practice, Peter represents his clients in Court and Arbitration proceedings involving both tort and accident benefit matters. He preserves a positive working relationship with claims personnel and insured persons to litigate legal disputes and negotiate early resolutions when possible.
While at Queen’s law school, Peter was awarded the course prize in Alternative Dispute Resolution. He worked in the Elder Law Clinic handling estate matters, and the Pro-Bono Clinic representing a prominent Kingston art gallery. He studied international Law at the Bader International Study Centre in England, and produced research papers on the legal status of the matrimonial home and the inveterate gender bias of the Canadian Federal Budget. During his spare time, he promoted an oncampus bike sharing initiative as a member of the Queen’s Law Budget Committee.
Prior to law school, he co-founded an international alternative fuels company, and once spent an unforgettable summer as an ice cream truck driver.
