Peter also has a growing reputation in the field of PPP projects, leading the firm's advice on key pathfinder projects across the GCC in the transport and infrastructure sectors.

Peter commented on his change of location:

“I am excited about the opportunity to expand our real estate offering from the UAE. This move will enhance the team and further grow our capabilities across the whole of the Middle East. There is huge potential with lots happening in the real estate sector and my move will help to develop our client base further.”
