Peter gained his LLB and Diploma in Legal Practice at The University of Edinburgh.  He completed his traineeship with the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.  Following his successful traineeship, he was admitted as a solicitor and Notary Public, and practiced as a Procurator Fiscal Depute for 3 years. Prior to joining Brodies, he prosecuted a number of high profile trials and consistently appeared in Sheriff and Jury courts.  Latterly, gaining his Certificate in Forensic Medicine and Science, he prepared and conducted Fatal Accident Inquiries on behalf of the Crown.

Enjoying a new challenge, Peter joined Brodies in 2019.  His wealth of advocacy experience combined with his adaptability, ease with technical information and acute strategic thinking led him to be one of the solicitors in the Contentious Construction team advising clients on a range of construction and engineering disputes.   

Peter is committed to offering excellent client service and real solutions; and he enjoys building good working relationships with clients.
