Mark E. Peterson

I set up MEP Law after 10+ years working in large firms.  My practice is focused on helping businesses with a diverse range of legal matters.  In my more than 15 years of practice, I have helped to guide many businesses from the initial startup stages, all the way through to sale, including all the bumps and turns along the way.  I am an expert in formation and initial capitalization of all types of business entities, securities offerings, corporate finance transactions, contracts and operational issues, mergers and acquisitions and business succession planning. I also serve as general counsel to companies ranging from small local businesses to large corporations that operate all over the world.


Prior to opening MEP Law in 2018, I worked as the managing partner of a leading firm in the Sacramento area, and prior to that I worked at one of the largest law firms in the world on large public company transactions and securities compliance matters.


When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family.  My wife and I have five beautiful daughters who keep us busy.  My favorite vacation always involves the ocean and I love spending time under the water diving.
