Farewell to Peter Kaplan
After over 30 years of zealously representing our clients, Peter Kaplan, one of our founding partners, has retired effective 12/31/20. Now freed from RFA-2 hearings and fraud trials, Peter will have more time to spend with his wife Eleanor in their Atlanta, Georgia home.
Peter was instrumental in the rapid growth of the firm following its creation. His relationships and industry contacts introduced many to Hamberger & Weiss LLP who are now valued clients of the firm. His adversaries in the claimants' bar knew him as an aggressive, tenacious litigator, as well as a premier fraud litigator in the defense bar.
In our office, however, we knew Peter as a mentor and a friend, who always had his door open to help his colleagues work through a difficult case, develop a business idea for the firm, or just to drink espresso and talk about current events.
Although the claimants' bar may be happy to learn of his retirement, we here at Hamberger & Weiss LLP will miss Peter greatly. Without him, we would not be the firm we are today. Congratulations, Peter, on an amazing career!
