He advises clients (ranging from multi-nationals through private corporates and  investment houses to management teams and start-ups) in a wide range of business sectors, including media/publishing, travel and leisure, pharma/biotech/life sciences and financial services.  Peter leads the firm’s Publishing and Media and Travel practices.

 Before joining Fox Williams in 2010, Peter was a partner for ten years in the London office of the international law firm, Jones Day; before that, he was a partner for many years at Simmons & Simmons. He is co-author of "M&A Strategies for the UK", published in 2007 by Aspatore Books, Boston, USA; he is recognised as a Leading Lawyer in M&A by Legal Experts 2010 and Legal Business, he is a Recommended M&A Lawyer in Legal 500 (2011) and is recognised as a Leading Lawyer in M&A in the 2012 Mergers & Acquisitions Guidebook published by PLC. Peter has an Honours Degree in Modern History from Oxford University. He qualified as a Solicitor in 1974.

Peter Faber is singled out by commentators for his expertise in publishing-related deals. "He is utterly reliable, a consummate professional and a skilled negotiator," says a client in Chambers, 2017.

''Very pragmatic and commercial, as well as being very experienced.'' (Chambers, 2016)
