3 Verulam Buildings (Chambers of Ewan McQuater QC and Adrian Beltrami QC)

Work Department

Philip is a leading junior who is regularly instructed in high-value, complex matters, particularly in relation to general commercial, civil fraud, financial services and insolvency disputes. 

The directories describe him as “seriously impressive and will no doubt be a star of the future”, “a sophisticated and erudite adviser”, “frighteningly efficient and very bright”, “exudes authority and has the ability to grasp complex issues quickly”, and “a really excellent junior.”

Philip’s recent experience includes representing the FCA in the Supreme Court in what is the leading authority on collective investment schemes: FCA v Asset Land, and representing the liquidators in the Supreme Court in Re D&D Wines International, where the court considered the circumstances in which a receipt by an insolvent agent would give rise to a constructive trust.  He is currently acting in a $250m claim against Tesco Plc arising from the retailer’s overstatements of profits, and represents one of the Defendants to a $400m fraud claim in a dispute concerning the alleged siphoning off of oil payments in Ukraine and Russia (PJSC Tatneft).
