Introduction

Peter is ranked as a leading junior in Property Litigation.  He regularly accepts all levels of court and tribunal instructions, predominantly in the fields of landlord and tenant, and real property. He has wide-ranging trial and appellate experience in the Court of Appeal, High Court, County Court, Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber), and the Land Registration and Residential divisions of the Property Chamber of the First-tier Tribunal.

As well as trial advocacy, Peter has wide experience of more complex interim application, including security for costs, interim injunctions and committal proceedings.

In addition to his general drafting and advisory work, which is held in high regard, Peter advises on the drafting of leases and commercial agreements.

Peter’s clients particularly appreciate the clarity and commercial reality of his advice, and he regularly accepts licensed and public access work.

He has unparalleled experience of leases of licensed premises and their complex legal, commercial and social nuances, with a particular interest in pubs, and publicans’ relationships with Pubcos and breweries.

As Secretary of the Property Bar Association, Peter is regularly involved in court and tribunal consultations, and works closely with the PLA.
