About Peter

Peter worked with Steve and Kieran in the Grants Lawyers days from 2005 to 2007, returning to Merthyr Law in 2012 to work in areas of commercial law, business structuring, corporate governance and estate and succession planning.

In between, he had a stint with the Australian Government Solicitor doing commercial, property, probity and governance work, including for such entities as the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Torres Strait Regional Authority, and various Federal Departments.

Peter has been admitted for longer than many of the Merthyr Law Staff have been alive, and while he acknowledges he is off the pace with the latest music, he takes comfort in getting his tenses correct and his self-proclaimed mastery of the apostrophe.
