Peter qualified as a solicitor in 1992. He is an experienced commercial litigator having trained and worked at well known city practices since commencing his training. He is now a Cubism consultant specialising in insurance disputes and insolvency related claims.
Peter has experience in professional negligence claims; (especially claims concerning construction professionals, accountants, surveyors, independent financial advisers and merchant banks), insurance; policy coverage disputes (e.g. avoidance of policy, rejection of claim, references to the Financial Ombudsman Service), insolvency; reported case on assignment of a cause of action by a liquidator, recoveries for insolvency practitioners and commercial litigation; breach of contract claims, claims under guarantees and shareholder disputes.

Being a seasoned litigator, Peter is familiar with the tactics often deployed and adept at parrying obstacles put in his client’s way by opponents.
