Peter Leckey

Senior associate | London

Client Services Contact Jessica Trickett


Peter is a senior associate in the litigation and arbitration team.

He has experience with general commercial disputes and complex insolvencies. Most of these involve multiple jurisdictions, including the major offshore jurisdictions of Bermuda and the British Virgin Islands. Peter's experience also includes public law matters (including judicial review), professional negligence and regulatory inquiries.
Peter firmly believes that to deliver the best outcomes for clients he must seek to understand the big picture opportunities and risks that can arise for clients in complex, domestic or multi-jurisdictional disputes.  To complement his legal background, he took a career break obtaining a Master's degree in International Relations, which focused on sustainability, political risk and cyber security.  These concepts are increasingly fundamental for clients and their interests, particularly given the UK's intended economic pivot away from Europe in order to develop and build relationships with Indo-Pacific markets and elsewhere.  This inevitably will have multiple impacts including economic, political and environmental, with new regulatory landscapes emerging that alter how clients evaluate opportunities both within the UK and between the UK and other regions of the world.  One likely consequence is that the resolution of disputes may encounter new international dynamics as the UK changes its focus and Peter has a particular interest in such developments.
