Peter Whyte

Peter is a Lawyer in our Business and Employment Law team.


After finishing high school in Toowoomba in 2011, I moved to Brisbane to study law and business. I worked in Brisbane, before moving to Sydney where I secured a position with a large highly regarded law firm. I was very fortunate to have worked with both international and Australian companies on large construction and infrastructure projects as well as acting for top tier contractors, universities, strata organisations, builders, individuals and local and state government. This experience helped me to find my way to Murdoch’s Business and Employment team, where I assist a large number of businesses across a range of industries.

I am excited to return to my hometown to build a career by assisting clients in the region and beyond. I understand the importance of business and enjoy the complex nature of the work. I receive real satisfaction out of helping clients achieve commercially favourable outcomes. When I am not at work or studying my Master’s degree, my time is usually spent enjoying the great outdoors in particular camping trips in the surrounding region or anywhere on a beach. I am also a keen traveller and enjoy all sport, particularly cricket, rugby, AFL and swimming.
