People - McCullough Robertson

Peter has practised in the financial services field for over 30 years, primarily in the field of property construction, corporate finance and receiverships.

He also managed the preparation of loan documents for high volume retail and commercial lending programmes for two banks, comprising more than 20,000 matters over five years.

His preferred approach is to build long standing client relationships and a close rapport, allowing the parties to be pragmatic and commercial rather than focus solely upon legal issues.

Peter has had the carriage of transactions involving combinations of debt, equity, mezzanine debt, security trusts, syndications, participations, offshore securities and inter-creditor arrangements. He also acts for borrowers, bringing to the table the experience gained in acting for lenders.

He has been the principal legal adviser in respect to various receiverships and workouts, many of which have been in the property and the hospitality sectors including a number of well known Queensland resorts and high rise developments.

Peter is a former member of the McCullough Robertson executive committee.

He is a Notary Public, a member of the Banking and Financial Services Law Association and the Queensland Law Society.
