Philip is head of chambers, and took Silk in 2010 “…to the unequivocal delight of the market” (Chambers UK 2011).
Philip is a specialist in property litigation. His practice straddles the commercial/residential divide; it encompasses all aspects of real property, commercial L&T, as well as the residential L&T (particularly enfranchisement and service charges) for which Philip is perhaps best known. He has a wealth of experience at the highest level; he has taken five cases to the Lords/Supreme Court and numerous others to the Court of Appeal.
"A true star with a first-class brain" (Legal 500 2015)
"Philip is extremely user-friendly. His advice is clear, definitive and reasoned, and his willingness to provide strong opinions gives you real faith in your position." (Chambers UK 2014)
