Peter is a Litigation Advisor in the contentious probate team and private client department. He specialises in inheritance claims, will disputes and executor disputes.

Peter grew up in Ashburton, studied law at the University of Exeter and the University of Saarland, Germany and completed his Bar Professional Training Course in 2017. He joined WBW in November 2017 after working for 2 years in the litigation department of a small London solicitors’ firm- a country boy at heart, Peter is delighted to have escaped the bright lights and be back in sunny Devon! He hopes to undertake pupillage and find work as a barrister in the Southwest in the next few years.

Peter enjoys getting into the heart of complex cases and working logically to draw conclusions or to find the flaws in others’ arguments. He tries to be straight-talking and pragmatic with his clients.

When he’s not working, Peter is a Scout leader and enjoys walking and riding horses on Dartmoor. He is also a keen bell ringer and often spends his weekends in draughty church towers.
