As a young man, Peter developed a passion for the legal profession.

This provided him with a broad understanding of diverse societal matters and a diverse range of legal issues. Subsequently, Peter relocated to Auckland and gained further experience by working for a prominent mid-sized law firm. He then progressed to become a partner at Kennedy Tudhope, where he continued to hone his skills and knowledge.
