Phillip has a busy commercial chancery practice with expertise in contentious insolvency, company, civil fraud, property, and contractual disputes. He is regularly instructed in disputes where those practice areas overlap, for example, fraud claims arising in insolvency.

Phillip’s current and recent caseload includes:

  • Representing the provisional liquidator of a partnership in an appeal against a freezing order (with Christopher Brockman). This is an important Court of Appeal authority on the circumstances in which it will be appropriate for insolvency office-holders applying for freezing orders to give a limited cross-undertaking in damages: Hunt v Ubhi [2023] EWCA Civ 417; [2023] Bus LR 1827.
  • Representing the assignee of a company in liquidation in a claim against the directors for £12m of misappropriated VAT
  • Obtaining freezing and search orders against the directors of a company involved in a labour supply fraud.
  • Acting for the joint administrators of a company which had a long lease of an abandoned development of 119 flats. The administrators made various applications to unlock the complex series of property and security interests over the site to enable a sale of a clean title and a return to creditors and investors.

According to the directories, Phillip’s “advice is clear and his drafting is accurate. He is calm when presenting the case” and is “courteous and professional”.
