Partner, Galadari Advocates & Legal Consultants
Peter is a Corporate Finance, Real Estate and Projects Partner based in Galadari’s head office in Dubai. Since moving to the Middle East in 2009, Peter has worked with prominent board and family members as well as CEOs, CFOs and General Counsels structuring, documenting and negotiating high profile and complex regional deals.
His expertise includes Banking, Islamic Finance, Corporate and Projects, Real Estate and Hospitality, Energy and Infrastructure, and Private Client, Tax and Estate Planning.
Outside of the region, and in addition to developed markets such as the UK, US and Europe, Peter has an impressive track record of successfully closing deals in many tricky emerging markets from Kazakhstan to Indonesia in Asia, Zambia and Uganda in Africa, the Dominican Republic and Colombia in Central and South America.
Peter is praised for his commercial acumen developed in various management roles. He works with private practice clients as an extension of their in-house legal department or as a substitution for the legal function in parts of their business where they do not have one. Clients benefit from his strategic advice often giving significant insights into industry sectors, in areas beyond the typical ambit of a legal advisor.
Prior to joining Galadari, Peter spent 20 years practicing at Magic Circle and Wall Street law firms, Fortune 500 companies and other prestigious regional corporates and government entities, working on a wide range of complex deals across multiple geographies, in both developed and emerging markets.
Peter obtained his First Class Honours in several subjects at Oxford University (BA, MA) before pursuing a Masters at Cambridge (LLM). He obtained a Commendation from Law School in London before qualifying as a Solicitor in England and Wales in 2000 and then at the Madrid Bar (not currently practising) in 2002.
