From Private Practice to Her Majesty's Treasury

Peter King is the Legal Director at HM Treasury in the U.K., leading a team of around 90 lawyers to provide legal advice to Treasury ministers and civil servants. Before his career in public service, Peter was in private practice for more than three decades. He joined Weil in 2008 as a Corporate partner in our London office, where he acted on several high-profile deals. He was also Co-Chair of our global Pro Bono Committee.

In this edition of the Weil Alumni Interview Series, Michael Francies, Managing Partner of our London office and a member of Weil’s Management Committee, speaks with Peter about his career. Peter discusses the adjustment from private practice to serving in HM Treasury, his core management tenets, advice for junior lawyers and the power of establishing a strong network.
