I have worked on global financing transactions for almost thirty years. I love the variety of issues that my work offers and helping clients solve complex problems.

Peter’s experience includes the establishment of EMTN and other continuous issuance programs, credit, equity, commodity, and fund–linked securities issuances, advising in relation to securitizations and collateralized debt obligations (both true sale and synthetic structures), and asset–backed commercial paper programs for European and U.S. issuers and other matters involving structured derivatives.

He has acted for arrangers, lead managers, portfolio managers, issuers, investors, and rating agencies, advising on both the legal and regulatory aspects of such transactions. He has also acted for other service providers, including trustees, on their ongoing role on structured finance issuances and in relation to their duties and obligations in relation to transactions subject to an Event of Default, unwinding, and/or restructuring. 

Peter has been actively involved in a number of restructuring and insolvency transactions, both before and during the financial crisis, including advising insolvency officials appointed to major financial institutions with significant cross–border activities. He has also advised investors in relation to their claims against entities subject to insolvency or restructuring.

Peter has advised financial institutions on a wide variety of regulatory issues, including the impact of Basel III, CRD IV, EMIR, MiFID II / MiFIR, PRIIPs, the BRRD, the BMR, and the introduction of bank ring–fencing and bail–in in the UK. More recently, he has advised firms on the impact of Brexit and the market transition away from LIBOR as a financial benchmark.

Peter has spoken and written extensively on the above matters and is a contributor to Covered Bonds Handbook, published by Practising Law Institute (2010).
