Peter Moore is someone I respect, enjoy, and deeply admire. I worked with him on what was undoubtedly my favorite client of all-time, Vital for Colorado, and I produced more than 70 hours of radio content with him. Peter not only has an uncanny work ethic, but a sharp sense of humor and the ability to converse with you on any subject. I feel fortunate that I got to work with him closely for four years on work that mattered, and even more fortunate to consider him a friend.
That’s all true, and represents what I think about first when I think about Peter. But I haven’t even gotten to his superlative legal work. Here’s the first paragraph of his bio from his page on the Robinson, Waters & O’Dorisio website:
Peter Moore is the Chairman of the Business Law Department and a member of the real estate practice group for Robinson, Waters and O’Dorisio. He serves as outside general counsel and corporate counsel for many local and regional businesses. Twenty years of experience as a commercial trial lawyer provides Peter with a unique perspective on his business practice and aids in his ability to structure deals and transactions in a way to minimize risk, avoid litigation, and efficiently achieve the client’s business goals. Prior to focusing his career on corporate, transactional, and real estate matters for clients over 20 years ago, he handled hundreds of litigation cases and successfully tried approximately 35 jury and bench trials in state and federal courts throughout the region.
The guy is a franchise player and a legal all-star. He is currently General Counsel for Major League Rugby. He sits on the Executive Committee of Colorado Business Roundtable and serves as its Legal Counsel. Very few people work as both trial and transactional lawyers, let alone do it successfully. Peter has. And on this week’s episode, I get to show you the guy I know and adore. We talk about why he chose law as a profession, the mentor that taught him to return all phone calls and respond to all messages before going home each night, what a “General Counsel” of a professional sports league does, and a ton more. In addition, we share some laughs, some war stories, talk about his love of cars, and the quirky way I could tell if we had a good radio show that week.
