Hommes d’Affaires

While well known for providing a ‘fresh, creative approach’ to his clients’ cases, Peter Black is old school. ‘I am not totally specialised — which works well for HNWs, who often have wide and varied problems.’ The senior partner regularly acts in ‘novel, difficult and high-value’ fraud, property and ‘big money’ matrimonial cases. ‘The world has become a much smaller place, and the ‘PT’ (‘permanent traveller’) is a much more difficult concept,’ he says, adding it’s one best understood by providing close counsel to high-flying HNW executives. He has had many memorable moments over his 40-year career. Clients describe him as ‘someone who can turn ‘awful’ into ‘pleasant’. ‘The man you want, and need, watching your back.’
