Practice Areas

Peter practises in crime, both defending and prosecuting difficult cases of great seriousness;

In 2021 amongst other matters he defended in very high profile long-running murder cases in Liverpool and Preston. In both of these matters he defended the alleged gunman. He prosecuted a teenager accused of murdering a drug dealer in Stafford and also appeared for the Crown in widely-reported cases of historic rape. In 2020 he successfully led for the prosecution at the Old Bailey in the East Croydon Railway murder. He also successfully prosecuted the double murder case of Tamar Moustafa in Birmingham. Earlier in 2020 Peter led for the Crown in the first ever prosecution for eel smuggling. Gilbert Khoo was convicted after trial of trafficking some £53M worth of live eels in a case that was reported across the world.

He has an enviable reputation for defending service personnel before the Court Martial in the most complex and sensitive matters. His “sharp, analytical mind” enables him to cut through the most complex of issues to focus attention and energy on the critical elements. Praised for diligent pre-trial preparation, he provides timely, thorough and realistic advice pre-trial and throughout proceedings. He has an expert knowledge of firearms and firearms law and regularly acts for the appellant in firearms licensing matters, be it refusal or revocation of certificates or proceedings concerning the suitability of persons to be registered firearms dealers. He has wide-ranging experience of defending serious rural regulatory proceedings and allied prosecutions in areas such as farming, meat production, hunting and fieldsports. He appears in cases throughout England and Wales and beyond.
