Innovative, insightful and practical, honed by 25 years + diverse experience.

Whether helping clients broker multi-party deals, navigate the intersection of business and government or find the right business structure, Peter distils what really matters and uses creative solutions where necessary.

Peter has a particular interest in managing change and in setting legal issues or transactions in the wider context, understanding the perspectives of multiple parties and how they are relevant to delivering success. He has delivered many projects in technology and media solving complex issues concerning software, rights and data. He understands the particular sensitivities of the public sector whether expressed through regulation or direct state involvement in deals.
