What can I do for you?

I am a corporate partner and I love my job. For over 20 years I have been helping management teams, private equity investors and individuals buy, sell, merge or fund their businesses locally, nationally and internationally. Once completed I work with them to govern and grow their business and to implement their commercial objectives and projects.

Consequently I have been involved in a wide range of deals of all shapes and sizes across lots of different sectors and jurisdictions.

Supporting my clients’ ambitions

I was acting for a private equity house in a competitive bid but we decided that the trade bidder was the more interesting target. Through connections of mine, I was able to engineer a meeting of both parties and from there a multi-million pound merger was forged.

Similarly, I had two clients in the same sector that were complementary rather than competitive. By making an introduction they agreed to work together on a tender for a government contract and won a lucrative long term contract as a combined force.

I particularly like bringing real added value to clients.

What do others say about me?

People have been generous with their praise over the years. My favourite is: “On repeated occasions Peter proved his worth as a knowledgeable and customer focused lawyer who is prepared (rare in class) to sacrifice his own ego for the objectives of his clients. Under pressure he has been consistently reliable and the trust he engenders widely is a hugely useful lubricant for transactions.”

What else should you know?

I am a member of Mills & Reeve’s cross-office Private Equity Group, which coordinates our focus on private equity practitioners and management teams who have bought out their businesses or wish to raise equity finance. Together we promote news, seminars and training to maintain the firm as a leading specialist in this area.
