Languages: French (conversational)

Philip is a specialist lead advocate whose practice focuses on commercial disputes in areas including fraud, banking, insurance, commodities, energy and shipping. He has considerable experience in relation to freezing injunctions. Philip is also particularly noted for his cross-examination skills.

Most of Philip’s work has a strong international element, with his clients coming from all around the world, including CIS, the Middle East, India, China, South East Asia and the US. The cases on which he is instructed often raise complex jurisdictional and conflict of laws issues, including the interplay between proceedings in court and arbitration.

He has acted as lead counsel before the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court of England and Wales, as well as in many arbitrations seated both in England and overseas. Philip also accepts appointments as arbitrator.

Philip is ranked in the leading directories for civil fraud, commercial dispute resolution, banking and finance, international arbitration, insurance, shipping, and commodities.
