Peter Coyle

Peter started his professional life in the City of London litigating insolvency and banking disputes. He worked for National Westminster Bank and Coutts & Co in their Corporate Recovery Teams in both London and New York.

Peter also managed a large portfolio of cases for the liquidators of BCCI recovering substantial sums in litigation throughout Europe and in Pakistan. Peter moved out of the City in 1996, principally to add some private client variety to his corporate banking expertise.

This transition has led to the development of CWD’s sports law practice, aided by Peter’s passion (some would say obsession) for sport and his large network of sporting contacts built up over three decades of legal practice.

Peter now serves as General Counsel or Legal Director to a number of CWD’s commercial clients, giving them instant access to commercial and transactional expertise drawn from his thirty years’ experience in litigating commercial disputes.

This more sedate specialism in ‘dispute prevention’ has given Peter more time to dedicate to his other qualifications as a CEDR accredited Mediator and as a FIFA licensed football agent.

Away from the CWD, Peter is kept occupied by the therapy of cooking, the physical strain of gardening, the occasionally good golf shot at Harewood Downs Golf Club and the stress of following the fortunes (and misfortunes) of West Ham United FC.
