Her litigation practice focuses on complex commercial litigation involving contract disputes, antitrust matters, energy, utility regulation, computer software and hardware, environmental litigation, real estate, insurance coverage, and intellectual property.
Peggy has arbitrated a wide variety of disputes, serving as sole arbitrator and as an arbitration panel member. She is a member of the panels of arbitrators for the American Arbitration Association, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, and the King County Mandatory Arbitration program. She also serves on the AAA’s Specialty Roster for FRAND Disputes, reviewing disputes arising out of patent owners’ obligation to license standard-essential technology patents on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.
