My work ethic

If you rush something , you’ll often return to fix it later.

I take my time, I want to get to know your business, your ideas, how you have come to where you are. What the issues or pitfalls are or may be, to study the variables and offer advice on a pathway forward and to combat the problems.

I take pride in being asked to assist people and become personally attached to each application that I deal with. Many of my current and past clients will testify to that as you’ll note in my testimonials page.

I have a wealth of policing experience behind me, and many years of dealing with licensed premises both as a police officer, alongside a licensing authority and as a consultant. I use all of my experience to build the early relationships on behalf of clients with the responsible authorities to set them off on the right track.

My experience and my work ethic has one aim, to succeed first time.

A little about me, Peter Conisbee

I retired from the Metropolitan Police in May 2017 with a certificate of exemplary conduct.

My entire career was spent with the Met police. I was first posted to a West London borough in the 1980s and remained there until I transferred to a north London borough in 2005. I spent 25 years of my service in uniformed front line policing, over 20 years of that on emergency response teams, the remainder on a task force. During those years of being a first responder, I experienced and dealt with every facet of front line policing, from helping someone across the road, to the aftermath of terrorism. There were times it was hard, almost painful, but from that I gained strength, strength to continue making a difference wherever I could, no matter how small. I loved being a police officer. To me it was about fairness, about looking after people, standing up to what some feared, and having the conviction of my own moral compass.

The latter years of my service I was a police licensing officer. It was a far cry from racing around, sirens wailing and lights flashing. Now I was sat behind a desk with the ocassional visits to licensed premises. However, this was one of the busiest boroughs of London in terms of licensing with over 1300 licensed premises, so there was no ‘getting comfortable’. I enjoyed this new direction so much that I decided to educate myself further. In 2013 I passed a licensing practitioners course and In 2017 I qualified as a paralegal in licensing law. I am now both a member of the Institute of Licensing, and the Institute of Paralegals.
