Peter specialises in dispute resolution, dealing mainly with commercial and property disputes.
His practical and common-sense approach to negotiating means that cases are resolved efficiently and cost-effectively. He is commercially-focused and works with clients to understand their legal and business needs so that the right solution is found.
He works across a range of commercial areas including franchising and franchise disputes, property disputes, shareholder and partnership disputes, breach of contract claims, landlord and tenant disputes and building and construction disputes.
In his property practice Peter regularly represents clients in boundary disputes and disputes relating to rights of way , other easements and covenants.
By assessing the important issues and looking at the bigger picture he finds pragmatic and effective solutions for both business and private clients.
He is an expert negotiator, conducting the dispute resolution process with a minimum of confrontation. His approach minimises damage to commercial relationships and ensures that no unnecessary costs are incurred.
With an excellent track record of success in negotiating satisfactory outcomes without recourse to court, he has an in-depth understanding of dispute resolution. In the event that litigation is necessary, he provides robust representation and has successfully defended claims amounting to several hundred thousand pounds.
