About Phillip

Phillip offers a friendly yet professional service to all of his clients and believes that understanding his clients as individuals is just as important as understanding the legal challenges they face. Having initially qualified as a planning law solicitor at Norfolk County Council in 2016, Phillip is well faceted in multiple areas of law and is therefore able to offer broad, practical and sound corporate and commercial advice by utilising the wealth of commercial experience he has acquired over the years.

Phillip is confident in his approach but also understanding of the sensitive corporate and commercial legalities that his clients often face, and he is therefore always willing to navigate them through the often-complex web of law to obtain the best outcome for them and meet their requirements.

Outside of work Phillip has a wide range of interests and hobbies. As well as having a passion for video games, Phillip is interested in space, history, travel, cooking, theatre and can often be found having afternoon tea in some of the many lovely eateries Norfolk has to offer.
