Peter advises on a broad range of issues relating to tax and investment funds, with a particular focus on private equity and venture capital structures. Advice given includes a consideration of not only the fund’s liabilities and requirements, but also the needs of investors.
Peter has broad experience of general regulatory issues surrounding financial services businesses, including in respect of investment advisory, management and e-money issues.

"Whilst I always focus my practice on the areas of law in which i have deep experience (corporate tax, funds and domain related matters), I have more than passing experience in several others (financial services, real estate, private client): I know what issues to look for, and effect referrals, outside my core area."
