Phillips Murrah is proud to welcome Peter K. Wright to our Firm as an associate attorney focused on issues involving business, clean energy, public utilities, and regulatory law.
Peter graduated from Oklahoma City University School of Law third in his class. He received the 2022 Judge Alfred P. Murrah Sr. Award for Outstanding Academic Performance, which is awarded to a single graduating OCU Law student each year by the school’s faculty. He also received awards from the OCU Law Review, including the 2022 Editor-in-Chief Award and the 2021 Outstanding Law Review Comment Award, and seven CALI Awards for top performance in a class.
During law school, Peter developed a focus on legal research and writing. He is drawn to issues that raise challenging questions and benefit from critical and creative thinking. As a legal intern, he previously worked on many of the same types of regulatory and energy matters that are part of his practice now.
Before he was a lawyer, Peter worked as a newspaper reporter and in government communications. In his free time, he enjoys traveling and previously spent a summer studying in St. Petersburg, Russia. He is also a cyclist, a hobby he picked up in his dad’s bicycle shop. Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Peter still lives there and is excited to practice in his hometown.
