Peter has also made several appearances at the Criminal The Court of Appeal, which sits in London at the Royal Courts of Justice in connection appeals against manifestly excessive sentences.

Peter has recently joined the Cobden House Chambers with our best wishes. We will still utilise him as instructed counsel for certain cases.


In the Crown Court, 2015 had already been an extremely busy year for Peter where he has dealt with significant numbers of ‘cannabis farm’ cases where clients are charged with either production/cultivation of cannabis or permitting the cultivation of cannabis.  

His skill in these cases has been shown in that he has been able to persuade the prosecution and the Court (where backed up by instructed drugs experts)


– to accept his clients mitigation that the plants were for personal use
– where clients have been under duress to permit/allow the cannabis to be grown
– to significantly reduce the yield/valuation of the cannabis
– to depart from the usual sentencing guidelines of custodial/prison sentences
