Peter started his professional life the City of London litigating insolvency and banking disputes. He worked for National Westminster Bank and Coutts & Co in their Corporate Recovery Teams in both London and New York.
Peter also managed a large portfolio of cases for the liquidators of BCCI recovering substantial sums in litigation throughout Europe and in Pakistan. Despite this being the most successful liquidation for unsecured creditors in the history of corporate insolvency, Peter decided that working for banks was not good for the soul! Peter moved out of the City in 1996 on a mission to help real people resolve real problems afflicting their lives. Peter remains a proud champion to the underdog who will happily litigate any type of dispute where there is a perceived injustice.
Peter spends most of his time at the High Court in London but runs an extremely diverse caseload including the resolution of employment disputes, sports disputes, professional negligence and contentious probate claims as well as criminal appeals and cases involving defamation of character.
As well as fighting cases for clients through the courts and other tribunals, Peter also takes joint instructions from disputing parties to resolve their differences through mediation. To this end, Peter is a CEDR accredited Mediator.
Away from the law, Peter is kept fully occupied by a wife, three children and the misery of following West Ham United.
