Peter is the head of the firm's City office and specialises in all areas of employment law acting for both employers and employees. He has particular expertise in advising on the enforcement of restrictive covenants, team moves and bonus claims in the High Court.
I have recognised expertise in relation to team moves, the enforcement of restrictive covenants and bonus claims. I also specialise in all aspects of employment and partnership law. I advise both employers, LLPs and senior individuals in the financial services, professional, recruitment and media sectors on matters ranging from major strategic issues to typical day to day queries.
I am also regularly involved in resolving sensitive and high-profile matters concerning whistleblowing, discrimination and regulatory issues.
I also have experience of acting for individuals, advising on new contracts, disputes and negotiating departures.
