Peter specialises in civil litigation and dispute resolution. He represents clients in disputes of all kinds, including those relating to employment, relationship property, inheritance, contracts and commercial issues, trusts and Maori land law.
Peter assists clients who wish to achieve a negotiated settlement, and provides robust representation for clients in dispute resolution processes such as mediation, in arbitration, and in the courts.
Peter graduated from Victoria University in 1990. After moving to Whangarei in 1993, he embarked on a 15 year career at Marsden Woods Inskip & Smith, where he was a partner and undertook Crown prosecution and other Crown legal work.
Peter joined Thomson Wilson in 2009, changing the focus of his practice from criminal law to civil litigation.
Outside work, Peter has always been a keen sportsman, although these days he is more likely to be found on a boat balancing a beer and a fishing rod, than competing in the endurance events of his younger (less-injured) days. Peter is a trustee of Sport Northland and serves on the judicial committee of the Northland Rugby Union. He also enjoys supporting his two children in their activities.
