Peter obtained an honours degree in Law in 1998 and passed the Legal Practice Course the following year. Peter started working for a growing defendant orientated City Law Firm in 2000, where he was offered a Training Contract, and qualified as a Solicitor in 2002. After qualifying, Peter moved to a multinational City based Law Firm, specialising in Defence litigation working for a number of large corporations.

In order to spend more time with his family, Peter moved to a national Law Firm in Hampshire, before joining Ascot Lawyers in 2006. Utilising his Defendant based background, Peter has represented one of the country's largest recovery and vehicle distribution operators, as well as dealing with personal injury litigation. In 2007 Peter was promoted to run the Civil Litigation department, including the Debt Recovery Department. During this time he continued to represent critical injury clients, as well as dealing with contractual disputes, building claims, consumer protection issues and defence claims. Peter was extensively involved in consumer credit litigation, leading to test cases before the High Court. In September 2009 Peter joined the Partnership at Ascot Lawyers and Peter is currently putting his litigation skills to use in an extensive project concerning Professional Negligence. 

In the belief that clients are best served by gaining a full understanding of their needs, Peter has built a team whose focus is on offering the local community a personal face-to-face legal service. In July 2015 Ascot Lawyers became a Limited Company and Peter now holds the position of Director.

When not spending time with his wife and two American Cocker Spaniels, Peter has a strong interest in science, technology, astronomy and astrophotography. Peter supports his local ice hockey team and is a fan of the McLaren Formula One Racing Team.
