DULUTH, MN—Duluth-based law firm Fryberger, Buchanan, Smith & Frederick, P.A. recently announced the addition of attorney Brian Peltier to their Duluth office.
Peltier graduated cum laude from the University of St. Thomas School of Law and joins the firm as an associate in the Public Finance Practice Group.
Peltier brings with him extensive experience in the financial services industry. Before attending law school, he began his career working for a large Canadian broker dealer and later joined the compliance team of a leading middle-markets investment bank. Peltier’s experiences during law school included interning in-house for an investment bank, interning for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C. and externing for Minnesota State District Court Judge Mary Vasaly in the Fourth Judicial District.
A native of White Bear Lake, Minnesota, he developed an early passion for analyzing and solving problems. For him, law represented an opportunity to continue his lifelong learning and work among like-minded professionals at the top of their fields. He was drawn to Fryberger for these reasons as well as the firm’s rich history in Duluth spanning more than 125 years.
“Fryberger has a strong reputation locally and throughout Minnesota,” Peltier said. “I was specifically impressed with their public finance practice and thought the firm’s culture would be a great fit for me, personally.”
