Peter Whicher (Solicitor)
Peter grew up in Winscombe in the foothills of the Mendips. He qualified as a solicitor in 1974 following his LLB at Warwick University and articles at John Hodge & Co in Weston-super-Mare.
On qualifying he joined Robert Smith & Partners in Bristol, but decided to get some experience in industry by first joining the Industrial and Commercial Finance Corporation in Birmingham and then the Bristol & West Building Society at their head office in Bristol.
In 1981 he returned to private practice first with Veale Benson at their branch in Weston-super-Mare and 1982 Lawrence & Co in Bristol running their branch office in Clifton for 5 years.
In 1987 he joined this practice (then Berry, Redmond & Hooper) based at their Winscombe branch, becoming a partner in May 1988. Peter retired as a partner and became a consultant with effect from May 2010.
Outside the practice Peter took on the post of part-time regional chairman of the Social Security Appeals Tribunal in 1994 and later was appointed part-time chairman of the Disability Appeals Tribunal based in Bristol.
Latterly Peter has specialised on domestic and commercial conveyancing (including estate conveyancing).
Peter has two daughters, both currently at University. Interests include sailing (preferably in the sunnier climes of the Mediterranean), tennis and local history.
