How Peter is building a better working world
“I achieve better outcomes for our clients and their customers across innovation, new technologies, IP and data by leveraging the multi-disciplinary insights and expertise not only within EY Law but also with our EY colleagues, nationally and internationally. I understand the interface between technology and law through all stages of a project from ideation to implementation, and the interplay of these factors with the client’s commercial concerns and objectives.
