Peter is a Special Counsel with Shine Lawyers Dalby Branch, specialising in Energy Law, having joined Shine Lawyers as a result of a merger with Shannon Donaldson in 2013. Having been a solicitor for over 35 years, he has never seen an area of law that requires thorough representation of the landholder in what is can be an imbalanced process.
Peter is very proud to be a part of an organisation that vigorously represents the disempowered and fights against large corporations and government on behalf of landholders within the Energy Law sector. Some Energy companies may state that they have a ‘standard’ agreement for the landholder to sign, with many landholders just accepting an offer from the company without seeking legal advice. Set apart from other lawyers by his diverse life experiences, which he credits with developing his understanding of his clients, communication abilities and strong work ethic, Peter empowers his clients and gives his all to achieve the best outcome for them.
Peter continues to stand up for the rights of everyday Australians and achieve great outcomes on their behalf. Peter also wants to help shape legislation within the coal seam gas industry in Australia and protect the rights of landholders.
