Prior to joining the Bar, Philip worked in senior management in industry for many years. After leaving industry Philip joined a firm of Estate Agents based in North Wales as a senior partner. The firm were agents for the Building Society of Wales, the Principality Building Society. Philip gained experience in all property matters including Landlord and Tenant and Mortgage, finance, company law and contract.
When first called to the Bar Philip lectured part time to accountancy students in contract and company Law. In his first three years he undertook agency prosecution work for the CPS. This gave him an excellent experience and grounding in criminal law. Subsequently Philip developed a criminal defence practice and in particular a specialisation in defending motorists in all aspects of motoring offences, including speeding, drink driving, careless and dangerous driving and totting. He has represented many premier league and championship footballers and other sports men and women in their motoring offences and has gained a high reputation in this field. Philip is often phoned by other barristers who are representing clients in motoring matters and seek clarification or advice when presenting their case.
In addition to criminal work, because of his experience Philip has developed a civil practice which includes property matters, (boundary disputes, Landlord and Tenant etc) contract, company law, insolvency, Immigration, family and general civil.
Philip’s practice covers the whole of England and Wales.
