Moore Blatch gets justice for a minority shareholder
I am a partner in the corporate team and am recognised as a leader in advising technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) businesses in respect of corporate finance and corporate structures.
Most of my clients are TMT based, most of which I have acted on behalf of for the last five years, and many for more than 10 years. I have built a strong reputation for providing quality advice tailored to the sector.
I often deal with some of Moore Blatch’s highest value and most complex transactions, with values ranging between £3m to over £100m. In addition, I have extensive experience in significant outsourcing contract work, including work on a number of tenders in the public sector.
I provide clients with my ultimate commitment to each and every matter, and work exceptionally hard to provide what clients need, when they need it.
I very much enjoy gaining an understanding of my clients’ businesses and developing long term relationships with them.
Out of the 17 Microsoft Licence Solutions Partners (formerly LARs), I have been responsible for five transactions.

"Peter’s understanding of the IT industry made a real difference to this deal. There were numerous complex commercial transactions that all had to be brought together to make this deal happen. Peter and his team supported us in the initial acquisition and by completely reorganising the company we have been able to gain the best possible price. I would therefore thank everyone at Moore Blatch for going that extra mile." Martin Trainer, Group CFO, Liberata Group
"We chose Moore Blatch because we were looking for local representation from a substantial law firm with strong credentials in negotiating sales of technology businesses. Our initial meeting with corporate partner, Peter Jeffery perfectly prepared us for the task ahead and, together with his team, delivered an exceptionally smooth transaction within the expected budget and timescales." John Corden (Kipper Sailing)
"Peter is our reason for being with the firm. It’s a style difference that sets Peter and Moore Blatch apart from others. He gives good legal advice, but also gives good commercial advice. That’s always important in negotiations. Peter is a good person to have in the room in the midst of all the negotiations. He conducts himself in a calm manner and has a good rapport with sellers and buyers. It’s not a question of being right all the time – it’s about building that trust." Client
