Known as “The Eagle” by a number of clients, the Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession describes him as “unflappable”…
On a slightly more serious note, the Legal 500 Guide to the Legal Profession describes him as a “standout lawyer” and the Chambers Guide comments, “Peter Considine stands out for his commerciality, with interviewees describing him as an incredibly talented lawyer, who is both technically and commercially very strong.”
