"Peter Lyons taught me Higher Rights of Audience for 6 days. I have been practising for many years but I still learned new things about advocacy.

He kept it fresh, interesting and I relished the opportunity to develop and hone my advocacy techniques. He stresses the importance of Case Analysis and I agree wholeheartedly.

I then hired CPD Training to teach arbitration advocacy to my team at O'Melveny and Myers. The course was excellent.

When I moved to Skadden Arps to head up Arbitration and Litigation in Europe, I called on Peter Lyons again. He delivered an intensive and valuable skills course to a team of highly-talented arbitration lawyers which culminated in a mock arbitration hearing before a former High Court judge.

My team were very happy with what they learned and found that the course stretched them, improved them and made them think. We intend to get CPD Training and Peter Lyons back again very soon."
