Position

Philip practises in all areas of real property (both residential and commercial) including landlord and tenant, construction disputes, as well as general contract work and professional negligence work associated with or arising from property and construction matters.

Philip has developed considerable expertise in advising and representing a broad spectrum of clients, both ‘professional landlords’ with large portfolios as well as single business tenants with limited experience and budgets. He is focused on achieving the best commercial outcome for his clients; providing practical legal, tactical and technical advice.

Philip also acts in professional negligence claims relating to property professionals including surveyors, solicitors and architects. He frequently advises on transactional oversights, document drafting and conveyancing mistakes, together with building inspection and valuation errors.

Philip acts in construction disputes and has a detailed practical knowledge of construction methods, offering a relatively unique understanding and approach to resolving the wrangles that frequently arise.

Philip acts in various contractual disputes including the interpretation of Contracts.

Over the last few years, Philip has also practised as a mediator specialising in property mediation (including construction disputes) and commercial mediation.
