Peter Dunning between 2014 and 2019 held a commission as the Solicitor-General for
Queensland. In that role Peter has appeared many times in the High Court of Australia
and other courts for the State of Queensland in the full range of constitutional, native
title and public law cases. During that period Peter also maintained his right of private
practice and continued his private practice predominantly in the areas of appellate
work and commercial litigation. Prior to his term as Solicitor-General Peter had a
large, essentially commercial, practice but in fact covering nearly the full gamut of
legal disputes and appearance work. Peter also maintains a significant advice practice.
