Commenting on his arrival, James Dow, founding partner of Dow Schofield Watts said: “Our corporate finance business continues to develop in terms of deal volumes and complexity leading to a continued requirement for first class professionals like Peter.

“We will continue to invest in the best people to differentiate our business. Peter’s appointment takes the Corporate Finance team to 17, which I suspect is one of the largest teams in the North of England.”
