Commercial Property

Peter is a consultant in the Commercial Property and Private Client department.  He qualified as a solicitor in Ireland in 1987.  Peter has carved a niche private client practice representing high net worth individuals across a broad spectrum of sectors including residential developers, landlords, publicans and medical and dental professionals.

His private client work is both contentious and non-contentious.  His contentious work involves landlord and tenant disputes, real estate planning disputes, complex liquor licensing applications, defamation actions, product liability and personal injury claims, inquests and representation before Tribunals of Inquiry.  Peter’s non-contentious work centres primarily on probate and estate planning including succession planning for family businesses and undertaking residential and commercial conveyancing transactions.

Recent work highlights include the sale of Ireland’s oldest pub, The Brazen Head to a UK property investment fund and the successful completion of the purchase of one of the highest value homes in Dublin, continuing his habit of handling many of the record-breaking residential property purchases and sales over several years.   Peter has also represented the executors of several high value estates involving the sale of assets in several jurisdictions.
