Philip, barrister at 3 Verulam Buildings, has a strong commercial practice which sees him regularly instructed in high-value and complex matters, particularly in relation to general commercial, company and insolvency disputes. He has a particular expertise in cases with a civil fraud angle. For example, he was part of the legal team representing the FCA in the Court of Appeal in what is the leading authority on collective investment schemes and the first fully-contested Unauthorised Business trial. He also represented the liquidator, led by Marcia Shekerdemian, in Re Ultraclass Ltd, where freezing and proprietary injunctions were obtained in support of misfeasance proceedings arising out of an alleged ‘land banking’ fraud.

Chambers UK 2015 recommended Philip as a leading junior for Restructuring/Insolvency: "He exudes authority, and has the ability to grasp complex issues quickly." Previous directories quote Philip as “Frighteningly efficient and very bright." "A really excellent junior."
