Peter J. Breckheimer II


Peter Breckheimer, a Partner in Glaser Weil’s Real Estate Department, represents owners, developers, private-equity investors, lenders and other sophisticated clients in all aspects of their real estate-related transactions, including:

  • The acquisition, disposition and development of major commercial real estate assets, encompassing retail, office, industrial and multi-family properties;
  • Commercial leasing transactions representing both landlords and tenants;
  • Real estate secured and mezzanine financings and loan workouts representing both lenders and borrowers; and
  • Joint venture arrangements.

In particular, Mr. Breckheimer has successfully represented clients in the purchase, sale and financing of retail shopping centers nationwide, most recently having handled and closed more than $1.75 billion of such deals throughout the West Coast, with asset values ranging from $5 million to just under $200 million.

Mr. Breckheimer enjoys working collaboratively with clients, colleagues and opposing counsel to ensure the finish line is crossed — no matter how straightforward or complex the process turns out to be. He recognizes that, to close any deal, each individual task along the way must be addressed and completed with both proficiency and efficiency.

Mr. Breckheimer received his law degree from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law, where he was a member of the Southern California Law Review. He earned a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and French from USC, graduating magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi.

Prior to joining the Firm, Mr. Breckheimer began his legal career practicing law at the international law firms DLA Piper LLP and Cooley LLP.

Outside the Firm, Mr. Breckheimer enjoys traveling, fine dining, golfing, photography and spending time outdoors with his wife and three children.

Mr. Breckheimer has been selected for inclusion in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 Southern California Super Lawyers lists.
