Pete specialises in cross-border private M&A, joint venture and private equity transactions. He also advises on public M&A transactions.
Many of the transactions that Pete works on are highly complex, such as carve-outs, back-to-back transactions or JVs with sophisticated exit arrangements. He also frequently works on transactions involving regulated financial institutions, which adds a further layer of complexity.
Pete regularly advises both strategic corporates and financial sponsors. He is a key member of the firm’s Financial Institutions Group and has a particular expertise in transactions involving Japanese parties, having spent nearly ten years working and studying in Japan.
Before joining De Brauw in Amsterdam, Pete spent many years advising on cross-border transactions in New York, London and Tokyo.
