A traditional firm with a modern approach
Peter Taylor has over 30 years of post-qualification experience and is Head of our Corporate, Employment and Company Secretarial departments.
I initially trained and qualified in London, before going on to spend three years in Hong Kong working on commercial and insurance matters. I then returned to the UK to specialise in corporate, employment, commercial and succession related work.
I am fluent in Spanish, having been born and brought up in Central America, and have acted for several organisations in the UK with links to Central and South America. I have co-lead two trade missions sponsored by the former Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) – one to Chile and one to Argentina and am the Chairman of the Society of British and Argentine Lawyers (SOBAL).
I have handled a variety of matters in Argentina, working closely with local lawyers on matters including joint ventures, share sale agreements, succession claims, property disposals and dispute resolution.
On the commercial side, I have been involved in all areas of work and have experience in drafting complex and diverse agreements, tailored to the needs of each client. I also specialise in employment law and have extensive experience acting on both sides for employees and employers on a range of different matters.
