Peter Randolph takes particular pride in spotting risks his clients had not previously seen and in crafting solutions to mitigate those risks and advance client interests.  His multi-jurisdictional practice is focused on taxation, business, and probate and trust administration. Our clients’ lives don’t stop at the state line and Peter has ensured that he can advise clients comprehensively on issues that affect their lives and livelihoods across the region and as far west as California.

Peter advises small businesses on partnership and corporate taxation, corporate governance, buy-sell agreements, reclassification, restructuring and succession planning.  Peter also acts as outside general counsel to a number of businesses.

Peter also regularly advises executors, trustees, and beneficiaries in the areas of probate and trust administration, including pre and post-mortem planning, and estate, gift, and fiduciary income tax.  Peter’s clients include high net worth individuals and families. In addition to advising, Peter personally serves as executor and trustee of estates and trusts in multiple jurisdictions, regularly dealing with the IRS and state taxation authorities.

Peter joined Lawless, Randolph & Dale, LLC (formerly Vesper & Lawless, LLC) as an Associate in 2008 and became a partner in 2012. With over a decade of comprehensive experience, he provides in-depth knowledge and expertise to craft effective strategies tailored to each client’s individual needs.

A native New Yorker, Peter resides in Montgomery County with his wife and children. He is available for meetings at any Nats home game (Camden Yards by appointment only).
