About Peter

Learn Peter’s areas of practice.

Pete Reid is an honors graduate of the University of Edinburgh School of Law. He was also selected for a one year international scholarship at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin, Texas.


Pete was admitted to the New York Bar in 2005 and worked exclusively in New York City until 2010 where he focused on trial work and commercial litigation, specifically, real estate litigation, contract disputes, and sports law.


In 2010, Pete Reid returned to Austin, Texas and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas. Shortly thereafter, he established ‘Pete Reid Law, PLLC’, a law practice specializing in business litigation, real estate litigation, and sports law. Mr. Reid continues to represent clients in both New York and Austin.


However, the approach of Pete Reid Law is not simply to “represent” our clients but rather we aim to be their warriors. We commit to learning everything that is uniquely important to each client, and to work creatively and tirelessly on their behalf.


In 2014, Pete Reid wrote and produced the first Pete Reid Law TV commercial which subsequently won the award for outstanding achievement in Internet advertising in the Web Marketing Association’s 13th annual Internet Advertising Competition.


In 2017, Mr. Reid was elected Chair of the Entertainment and Sports Law Section of the Austin Bar Association.


Mr Reid is also an accredited mediator in Texas and an Associate Member of The Society of Writers to Her Majesty’s Signet in Scotland.

Courteous, professional, and caring
I highly recommend Pete Reid. My son had a signed contract for a condominium and the seller reneged on the contract. Mr. Reid wrote a very thorough letter to the seller and I believe it was this letter that influenced her to proceed with the purchase of the contract. The entire time we dealt with Mr. Reid he was courteous, professional, and caring. He also explained things very thoroughly each step of the way. Two lawyers have since reviewed his letter, as well as the real estate company, and all were very impressed with his work.

Very Impressive
Pete was referred to me by another attorney in Austin. Since then I have retained him on two occasions (both related to business litigation). Both times Pete helped me accomplish my goal with a minimum of frustration and stress. I highly recommend him. I have been impressed by a few things about Pete: He's very good at what he does. He's great at writing statements and filings, of course, but he's also great at understanding a case and seeing it from different perspectives. Both times I worked with him he pointed out things I hadn't considered. He's also very friendly and engaging. For example, your phone calls with him are never stressful. Part of that is his great sense of humor. In fact, one of his responses to opposing counsel holds a permanent place in my personal hall of fame of "witty comebacks." Another thing that really stands out about Pete is his candor. I've worked with a fair number of attorneys in the past. They generally refuse to give helpful answers to questions like "Can I do X?" or "What are the odds of Y?". Pete will give you a straight answer, like "The odds are probably 75%". That's tremendously valuable when you're trying to weigh your options and make the best choice. If you need help with business arbitration or litigation, you're in very good hands with Pete.
