Kingsmede has trusted Peter to represent them across a number of varied and complex real estate, development and financing transactions over the past five years. His commercial approach and in depth understanding of real estate markets and financing has ensured we always achieved the desired outcome and completed the transaction. Peter is a trusted adviser who we seek counsel on in relation to both legal and commercial issues relevant to property investment and financing matters.

Brent Mulligan, General Manager - Kingsmede

... key attribute that stands out to me is his emphasis on providing effective and efficient legal advice in a commercial context. As a former lawyer myself, I have seen firsthand on many transactions how a grandstanding or pedantic lawyer can delay or derail a transaction and add unnecessary cost and complexity. Peter is not one of these lawyers and actively works to focus on the material issues you need to be aware of often with tight timeframes.
His experience means he is also good at summarising complex property and finance matters in plain English and makes him very easy to deal with.

Richard Gabelich, CEO - Campus Living Villages

... Peter played key roles on several landmark deals for both foreign and domestic investors and developers, using his expertise and formidable experience to ensure the practical application of law to many technical and complex transactions. A key feature of his work is his ability to provide user-friendly advice delivered extremely efficiently and in a timely manner, ensuring the clients' commercial objectives are being achieved.

As well, Peter has championed thought leadership efforts in Real Estate and Personal  Property securities law, regularly publishing articles and presenting papers, internally and externally. Recently, his participation on committees with the real estate industry's peak body resulted in  important changes to Government policy on the application of the Commonwealth Government's Foreign Real Estate Investment regulations which will have lasting benefits.

Peter's collaborative and commercial style has contributed greatly to the success of the clients he has represented and the teams he has been part of.

Les Koltai, Partner, Real Estate - DLA Piper

We had the opportunity to work together with Peter during a very extensive and complicated acquisition for a new project “Southpoint” in Brisbane where he took the negotiation lead on the Development Management Agreement (being the key document relating to the development) as well as overseeing all other major documentation. His enthusiasm, engagement and knowledge was remarkable. His professionalism and personality makes it great to work with him.
We are very thankful for his commitment, wish him all the best for his new path and will hopefully have new projects coming up together again soon.

The Alternative Board consists of the owners/managing directors of a number of small to medium sized businesses. The skills and experience of the other board members provide guidance to individual members in overcoming issues which arise in the course of their business.

Having Peter on the board has proved to be of significant value to the other board members. Peter's legal background and his commercial experience have greatly assisted other board members in identifying issues they need to be aware of in transactions in which they are involved. Peter has also assisted members in fundraising activities and has made a positive difference to the level of discussions occurring a board meetings.

In addition to Peter's professional qualities,he is good to deal with as is evidenced by the feedback received from other members of the board. Given this, I believe Peter has the right background and qualities to deliver the services and benefits he is offering his clients.

Peter has assisted me in relation to property financing, joint venture and co-ownership arrangements and other commercial matters relating to property transactions for nearly 10 years. As a property investor and developer, I have found his expertise and commercial approach invaluable in guiding me (and my investors) through complex transactions and making sure our interests were properly looked after.

His experience and strategic approach has helped me understand complex legal concepts and documents thereby enabling me to negotiate better results with the other parties to the transaction. As a result I regard him as a trusted adviser who I can speak to about legal and commercial issues associated with property investment and financing matters whenever I want help to make sure I am approaching the matter properly and protecting my interests.

I would not hesitate in recommending Peter to any property investor embarking on a transaction in relation to which they are unfamiliar and would benefit from receiving guidance from a senior experienced and commercial lawyer.
