Peter Marcus

Year of call 2004


Peter has always worked solely in housing and anti-social behaviour matters. He spent his whole working life before coming to the bar in housing in one way or another – as voluntary campaigner, research assistant to Government regeneration studies, in local authorities, and as national research manager for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

He speaks regularly at housing law conferences (including Lime Legal and Landlord Law), does legal training for HQN, and for housing association and local authority staff, both in conferences and in-house, is an experienced mediator (CEDR accredited), and writes and trains generally in court procedures and housing law.

Peter’s advice, drafting and other work is quick, accurate and effective in person, on paper and in court. He is exceptionally good with clients, and accepts instructions throughout the North-West, North-East, Yorkshire, East Midlands, Lincolnshire, North Wales and, quite often, beyond.

He is good on substantive law but also points of procedure, evidence, costs and all other aspects of running and winning cases effectively and economically.
