“Peter has been hugely influential on my career. While the managing partner at Eversheds, he permitted me to have a joint venture as an immigration consultant. He endorsed me building the immigration department, appreciating that I did not aspire to become a partner. Since establishing my own law firm 20 years ago, Peter has been a tremendous asset to the firm and me, being a sounding board, mentor, trainer and adviser, always providing wise counsel.”
