    Legal 500

Peter’s practice spans both the prosecution and defence of very serious criminal offences; military law; licensing; inquests and regulatory law especially in rural and agricultural matters.

In Chambers UK 2019, Peter is described as: “Extremely good with lay clients and on his feet. His manner with clients gives him an edge – he is superb in how he commands respect,” and “Very persuasive and someone with a good court manner, he gets on well with judges at court.”

He is listed in the Legal 500 “as being particularly good for anything to do with firearms”.

A large part of his practice involves defending military personnel at courts martial in the UK and abroad. Peter has been involved in many if not most of the more serious and high-profile court martial cases of recent years – including allegations of murder, manslaughter, rape, serious sexual assault, other violence and dishonesty, as well as cases arising from alleged ill-treatment of enemy combatants, non-combatants and subordinates on operations.

Peter has a specialist knowledge of, and expertise in, firearms and firearms legislation – and is frequently instructed for the appellant in firearms licensing matters throughout England and Wales.
