Peter joined Kenworthy's Chambers as a pupil on a short pupillage in September 2010, after spending the previous 19 years as a solicitor, initially in a high street practice and for the last 15 years in a specialist practice conducting serious personal injury claims. A member of APIL and a former member of Forces Law which specialised in claims by Armed Forces personnel, he is now undertaking general civil and personal injury work.
Interests Outside the Law:
Peter regularly appears in court in civil disputes, but also undertakes mediation both as a representative and as a mediator and has a range of classic vehicles, too many as his wife constantly tells him, including: his first ever car, a 1973 Rover P5bCoupe, now twice restored during his ownership; a 1969 Volvo Amazon 123GT upon which he has been doing a nut and bolt restoration for some years; a 1968 Daimler Sovereign 420; a 1999 Rover 800; a 2001 Daimler SuperV8 x308 LWB (daily transport); a 2005 Jaguar XJ 4.2 LWB and; a beetle back 500cc JZR three wheeler. In addition Peter owns a 1954 BSA A10 and a 1991 Enfield Bullet. Read more here.
Reading - mainly military history and political biography.
Having built a substantial extension and a double garage some years ago, Peter now finds his time taken up simply maintaining the existing family home, where no job is too big and he will rarely admit to needing professional help!
Peter remains a serving member of the Territorial Army, which he joined in 1990. He served a tour in Iraq in 2003 and attended Staff College in 2004. He was awarded the Queen's Volunteer Reserve Medal in the Birthday Honours List 2007.
Peter is a keen runner and cyclist, although family commitments mean that he now does more short runs than long cycles.
