If you create 2 circles you can then find that point using intersection snap.
I'm not really sure if there is much possibility to make it any shorter than that, because you need to identify the location of P1, and the distance of L1, and then the location of P2 and the distance of L2.
Creating 2 circles is the same number of picks as that, pick the location of P1 for the center of the circle, and type in L1 for the radius of the circle, pick the location of P2 for the radius of the 2nd circle, and type in L2 for the radius of the 2nd circle...
