Career

A versatile silk who maintains a deliberately broad practice, Philip is a recognised leader in data protection/FOI/privacy law, areas of government law (including elections, planning, licensing and finance) and commercial litigation (including civil fraud and VAT/excise disputes).

Experience and expertise
Philip has extensive court and tribunal experience to the highest appellate levels. Recent major court appearances have variously been concerned with financial services, civil fraud, freezing injunctions, local government law, judicial review, planning, environmental law, privacy and data protection, and freedom of information. In addition, Philip has appeared at numerous major planning and environmental inquiries. Thorough preparation, effective use of team resources and client commitment are combined with an open style to ensure clear advice and convincing representation.

Publications
Philip is the author of the leading practitioner text on Freedom of Information (FOI) and similar rights. Now in its fourth edition, Information Rights has been widely acclaimed and is regularly cited. He has co-authored Tribunal Practice and is a contributor to Atkin's Court Forms (volumes on election law, on economic torts and misfeasance in public office and on evidence).
