About Eric Peterson

Eric Peterson

Eric Peterson represents corporate clients in bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy insolvency proceedings, such as receiverships, assignments for the benefit of creditors, commercial collection matters, and out-of-court debt restructurings, and I defend banks in relation to lender liability and other claims.

He has graduate level training in accounting, finance, and operational management and serves as the Vice-Chair of the Missouri Bar Creditor-Debtor Rights Committee, and as the Chair of the Missouri Bar Subcommittee on Commercial Receivership, and is active in the American Bankruptcy Institute and Turnaround Management Association.

He is a believer in the value of bankruptcy mediation for a variety of commercial dispute types, whether simple or complex, and is trained as a mediator through the American Bankruptcy Institute/St. John’s Law School Bankruptcy Mediation Training Program – the premier bankruptcy mediation training available.

I am a frequent speaker and writer on bankruptcy and insolvency subjects and appear several times yearly on panel discussions. My practice is primarily in Missouri, but is national in scope. I am admitted in California, Washington DC, Maryland, and Missouri, and in the United States District and Bankruptcy Courts in those jurisdictions, as well as in the Central and Southern Districts of Illinois.
