In the context of health and safety, and environmental crime Peter has been instructed to appear on behalf of corporate accused in the most serious prosecutions, statutory appeals and high profile Fatal Accident Inquiries in recent years.

In relation to financial crime Peter specialises in corporate fraud, tax fraud, VAT evasion, and bribery and money laundering offences and has been instructed in a number of the most significant financial crime cases including those relating to MTIC carousel fraud, offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906 and the Bribery Act 2010.
