Career

Philip is liked by solicitors as he specialises in difficult briefs whether because the personal circumstances of the client are against them or the facts pose a challenge. His eleven years volunteering with a London soup-run make for excellent communication skills and courage under pressure. An advocacy trainer for the Inner Temple, he has a confident court presence and, when the case needs it, dogged tenacity.

His practice is principally public and private children issues representing any party and he undertakes some common law work, mostly in the field of public housing. In addition, he has a buoyant financial provision practice up to and including high-value work in the High Court and on appeal.

When time allows, Philip is able to take instructions under the Bar Council Direct Access scheme.
