Police Law

Peter regularly appears before the High Court, Crown Court and Magistrates’ Court on behalf of police forces and public authorities in civil applications.  For example, relating to sexual offending, modern slavery, licensing, disclosure and public interest immunity, and the forfeiture of cash under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.  He also defends civil claims brought in the High Court and County Court.

Peter has undertaken secondments to the legal departments of four police constabularies (Greater Manchester, Lancashire, West Midlands and Staffordshire, and Devon and Cornwall and Dorset), where he worked alongside in-house lawyers and responded to the day-to-day legal queries of officers from Chief Constables to PCs.
