Criminal Regulatory

Peter has substantial experience in dealing with inquest cases having acted for families of the bereaved, employers and individual professional workers.

The experience he gained from working as a clinical negligence solicitor, and as a legal adviser to a leading teaching trade union, has equipped him with sensitive client care skills and invaluable insight into the realities of the working lives of busy professionals.

He has dealt with a wide range of cases including healthcare related deaths, workplace fatalities, and the deaths of school children. His recent cases include representing a GP at an inquest into the death of a care home resident who had been sectioned by the police, and acting for another GP in a high-profile case concerning a school child who killed herself. His current caseload includes representing the family of a man who died after being restrained at a pub.

In a particularly high profile criminal case he successfully defended a pilot of a helicopter charged with manslaughter following a fatality at Long Marston Airfield during an incident involving the Warwickshire Hunt.

He has also acted as counsel on two major independent inquiries into homicides committed by patients with mental health problems.
