Instructing Peter Fields

For more information please contact our clerks by calling +44 (0)20 7242 3555.

Peter started at 7BR as a pupil in October 2019 and is currently supervised by Jeffrey Jupp (Commercial Litigation, Employment, and Regulatory and Professional Discipline).

Before being called to the Bar, Peter started his career with a PhD in chemical engineering and spent 15 years with ICI in a variety of roles in research, production, sales and business management. He then led a management buyout and implemented a buy-and-build strategy to build a leading European specialty chemical producer. He continued with investing and building a diverse range of successful companies working as a Chairman/entrepreneur/non-executive in the chemicals, logistics, food, consumer and legal sectors.

Whilst working, he was increasingly exposed to a growing range of legal activities in a variety of areas including employment, dispute resolution, commercial litigation, company law, M&A, banking, and regulatory. This led to a decision to switch careers and he started on a path to become a barrister, which took him to his place as a pupil at 7BR.

In addition to his BSc and PhD in chemical engineering, Peter has a first-class degree in psychology alongside a first-class LLB, a distinction in his LLM, and a Very Competent in his BPTC. He has also completed his Legal Practice Course (LPC).

The combination of his extensive practical/industrial experience coupled with his technical knowledge will, it is expected, enhance his ability to help clients successfully resolve their legal issues.
