What can Philip do for you?
Philip works with clients to find solutions to the difficulties that they face on the breakdown of a relationship. Philip has over twenty five years of experience of working with divorcing couples. He has supported many clients through the Collaborative Family Law process but also represents clients at court with energy where necessary.
Supporting my clients' ambitions
Philip is widely regarded as listening with great care to his clients and providing them with insightful advice which they trust.
Philip frequently cuts through the legal complexity of a situation. His clients value the practical, problem solving advice that he delivers. Philip generally achieves rapid settlements for clients without the need to go to court. Equally, Philip's expertise means that he has been able to secure decisions from the courts with which clients have been very pleased. Recently, he obtained a settlement of more than £10m for a client whom other solicitors had advised would receive nothing.
What do others say?
"Yesterday feels like vindication for all our work together. I can't thank you enough for your calmness, professionalism and skill. You have been an anchor and I am so very grateful for your help.
I think the outcome is as good as we could have hoped for.
Again, thank you for everything."
What else should you know?
Philip's calm personality should not be confused with a lack of Yorkshire grit. He is very proud to have been part of a team of fourteen from the Leeds office of Mills & Reeve to have completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge raising money for three local charities. A first for Philip at the age of 51!
