He then practised in insurance and commercial litigation as a solicitor for 8 years, the majority of that time as a partner at Atanaskovic Hartnell. Peter was admitted to the New South Wales Bar in 2004. He was a foundation member of Banco Chambers.

Peter practises in a diverse range of areas, but focuses principally on commercial, corporations, and equity matters. He has also appeared in numerous commissions of inquiry.
