Peter Prieto takes chairmanship of Holland + Knight Litigation Section as state is set for growing number of subprime lending cases
After serving as the executive partner of Holland + Knight's Miami office, Peter Prieto has been tapped to head the firm's national Litigation Section. He oversees 16 practice groups and 444 lawyers across the country, as well as co-chairs the firm's national White Collar Defense Team.
Mr. Prieto began his career with Holland + Knight in 1985 and worked there two years before serving as an assistant US attorney in Miami for eight years. He rejoined the firm in 1996. He still carries a caseload despite his new national responsibilities, focusing on complex litigation, large breach of contract cases and class action defense, as well as representing companies and executives in criminal investigations.
Mr. Prieto was interviewed in his Brickell Avenue office by Miami Today staff writer Risa Polansky.
