Admitted in 1985, Peter is a Director and Senior Solicitor at Kenneth Bush, leading the Family Law department, specialising in child care. He has over 30 years post-qualification experience having undertaken his Articles with the firm directly after Law School, and is very well respected by his peers.
Up until 1991, Peter ran our Downham Market Office but wished to specialise in Family Law, which is where he believed his true talents lay.
He is a skilled advocate and spends the majority of his time conducting matters in the Norfolk Courts. His particular specialism is the conduct of child care cases involving those matters where the Local Authority institutes proceedings. Parents find him to have a sympathetic ear, but be effective at a time of great distress. He is regularly recommended by all professionals to act for children the subject of such proceedings, as well as parents in sometimes difficult and complex matters before the Court.
Peter is regularly mentioned in the Legal 500 regarding his practice. He also fully supports the work of the local Family Justice Council and Court User Groups, having previously been on the same as the local solicitor representative.
Over the years Peter has endeavoured to ensure that he has a dedicated and hardworking team involving his personal staff of four and to build a department where his colleagues have a similar team behind them, thus ensuring that all clients have full attention to their matters at all times.
He is a member of The Law Society’s Family Law Panel (Child and Adult representative) and a member of Resolution (formerly SFLA).
