Peter J. Gillin, Partner

Pete Gillin advises investors and entrepreneurs on critical corporate law and contract law issues affecting their businesses.

Before joining Tuesley Hall Konopa, Pete served as Chief Business Officer for a software development startup originating from Notre Dame. During two years in this role, Pete negotiated several joint venture agreements with the major stakeholders as well as managed the day-to-day administrative functions of the business. Pete’s experience working legal issues from the inside has shaped an appreciation for how the legal elements of any transaction represent only a part of a more complicated puzzle facing his business clients.

Pete is a seasoned transactions attorney who served for five years as a partner in the South Bend office of a national law firm. Before moving to Indiana, Pete served as an associate in the business transactions practice groups of two international law firms based in the Northeast.
