Peter is a Director and Head of the Business Department.
He joined Michelmores in 2013 as the Firm's first Business Manager, before being appointed Head of Business in 2018.
Peter was formerly the Operations Partner at Gerald Eve, a London based real estate advisory business who had a national reach with seven other UK-based offices. He is a Chartered Accountant who, after qualifying with KPMG, has spent most of his professional career in partnership management in both the legal and real estate sectors.
Peter's remit is to help optimise the Business departmental performance and assist in effecting the delivery of the group's goals. He is a Board member, member of the Diversity & Inclusivity Working Party and also sits on the Firm's Property Strategy Group. Peter establishes and maintains a forward looking management team, which has overall accountability for winning new business, servicing existing clients and developing people across the Business Department.
Peter provides support in formulating and implementing strategy, which in turn gives lawyers more time to concentrate on client-facing work, and in particular, relationship development. He actively participates in firm-wide decisions, striking an appropriate balance between representing the needs and views of the Business Department, whilst supporting what is in the Firm's best interests.
Peter encourages an entrepreneurial spirit, through facilitating ideas and opportunities for business growth and creates an environment to support high levels of morale and engagement across the department.
