Peter heads the family team at the Leeds office of Shoosmiths. He advises on all aspects of family law for married or cohabiting couples, whether in relation to financial issues or the arrangements for children.
He has practiced family law for more than 25 years. Peter acts for clients from across the country and overseas. His expertise includes cases with an international element which may involve a choice of jurisdiction, overseas assets or a parent wishing to relocate with the children.
Peter has particular experience of cases involving inherited wealth and assets acquired pre-marriage as well as the valuation of businesses, properties and pensions. He is able to draw on the expertise of Shoosmiths' in house accountancy support where there are “hidden” assets, complex business structures or issues surrounding 'non-dom' status. Shoosmiths is one of very few firms able to offer this service.
Peter is as adept at negotiating settlements as he is litigating to protect his clients' interests.
Peter has a great deal of experience of drafting Cohabitation Agreements as well as Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements.
