Before starting at the Bar, Peter Dodge worked in the City as a fund manager in the asset management division of a leading investment bank, the clients which he advised including pension funds. He participated in the London Business School’s Investment Management Programme and holds the Certified Diploma in Accounting and Finance awarded by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. On completion of the Bar Vocational Course, he won the Everard Ver Heyden Foundation Prize for Advocacy.
Having worked in the industry, Peter has a particular interest in matters involving asset management or the sale of investment products. Peter has experience of advising both pension fund trustees and private investors in this field. Peter has also advised trustees on issues concerning the Pension Protection Levy.
Increasingly, many of Peter’s instructions have a financial regulatory element. He has experience of pure regulatory matters, including, for example, the responsibilities of IFAs under the Pensions Review. He has appeared before the FSA’s Regulatory Decisions Committee and the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal.
Peter sees litigation as a continuing process, believing that consistency in the presentation of a case from the very beginning provides the strongest negotiating position for early settlement. He is regularly invited to speak on newsworthy topics within his areas of practice both by legal training organisations and firm of solicitors. He sees this as an important part of the process of building relationships and understanding with professional clients and is always happy where possible to assist existing and potential clients with their in-house training programmes.
