MICHAEL HART

Partner

Michael's practice focuses on counseling entrepreneurs and emerging businesses, as well as facilitating corporate transactions. Michael’s early experience as the owner of a general contracting business gave him first-hand knowledge of the challenges that his clients face. He brings this unique experience to bear by not only providing his clients with sound legal counsel, but efficient, common-sense solutions to help them achieve their goals.

Prior to founding Peer & Hart, PC, Michael was a transactional attorney at Fox Rothschild LLP where he provided counsel to a diverse group of clients in a wide range of legal matters, including business formation, contract drafting and negotiation, corporate governance, financing, and mergers and acquisitions.

Outside of the office, Michael enjoys playing guitar, following the NBA, and defending his belongings from the claws of his mischievous cat, Bernie.
