An experienced commercial lawyer, Peter was a senior partner in private practice with regional and London firm Ashfords LLP for 14 years before joining The Legal Director in March 2015. As a board member of Ashfords, he helped drive the firm forward following its demerger from Bevan Ashford in 2004.
Peter read law at the London School of Economics and trained in the City. Immediately prior to joining Bevan Ashford in 2001, he was general counsel and main board director of global automotive consultancy and software specialists Mitac.
Peter’s expertise is wide ranging. He was originally a commercial property partner at Ashfords, but, in more recent years, headed up one of their corporate and commercial teams.
This width of experience enables him to advise companies and their owners on a wide range of legal and commercial matters. Peter particularly enjoys dealing with:
- complex contractual matters, particularly joint venture arrangements;
- corporate and business sales; and
- commercial leases.
Peter is based in Somerset but works with clients across the country, particularly in the South of England and London.
Peter works closely with his wife Michelle. As will be seen from her profile on this site, she is a high level employment specialist, having also been a partner at Ashfords for a number of years.
