Peter Halabu, JD, MBA

Peter began his legal practice in 2010, during the Great Recession. His initial practice focused on representing business owners in financial trouble. He assisted clients with loan workouts/buyouts and foreclosure defense. Where those failed to resolve the situation, he represented clients in dozens of Chapter 11 (business reorganization) bankruptcies and Chapter 7 (personal) bankruptcies.

As the economy recovered and improved, Peter’s practice shifted to commercial litigation, then to business and real estate transactions, which are his current areas of practice. Besides representing clients in purchases and sales, Peter also helps clients navigate complex contractual matters; arrange for corporate formation and organization; lend and borrow money; and plan for generational succession of both business and personal assets.

Besides practicing as an attorney, Peter also works full-time as a title insurance agent and 1031 exchange facilitator. Peter’s hands-on work in these fields helps him meet his clients’ transactional goals intuitively, creatively, and effectively.

Outside of the office, Peter is involved in the Michigan Land Title Association, serving on several committees and spearheading attempts to increase cooperation between title agencies. He is also an active member of the Real Property Law Section of the Michigan Bar Association; the Chaldean American Bar Association; and the Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce.
