Long regarded as a leading individual in the fields of litigation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution, Peter is described by a leading legal directory as "a go to lawyer".

I act for a wide range of leading and fast-growth companies, in particular in the technology, telecoms, digital, automotive and life sciences sectors, advising them across the full range of commercial, corporate and business protection issues and disputes, with a particular emphasis on dispute avoidance and resolution. I have a first-rate track record of helping clients to resolve problems at an early stage, and where required of winning at trial. I am known for my strategic skills and building long term client relationships.

Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

My expertise in technology and digital matters means that I am at the cutting edge of the issues faced by all organisations, whatever their sector. Helping my clients avoid, minimise and resolve risk is at the heart of my role as a 'trusted adviser'.

I am a committee member of Osborne Clarke's Pro-Bono group providing support to parties that might otherwise struggle to obtain proper legal advice.

Peter has 'renowned corporate and IT disputes expertise'  and is 'a real problem solver … and … someone who invests client relationships' (Legal 500)
