Jeremy Phillips QC, Mediation Profile

Jeremy Phillips, previously senior partner of Holt Phillips, was the leader of national teams in international law firms Eversheds and Osborne Clarke before his transfer to the Bar. For some time he was the only solicitor to achieve Chambers and Partners highest rating in his specialist field.

At Francis Taylor Building he has maintained his leading reputation in alcohol, entertainment, and gaming licensing legislation (Leading Junior), whilst renewing his earlier practices in the fields of planning, environment, health & safety, administrative & public law (Leading Junior) and regulatory law.

".. continues to go from "strength to strength" since his transition from solicitor to barrister and brings a "wealth of industry experience" and a "superb legal brain" to the table. He is highly regarded for his opinion on liquor licensing laws and is deemed to be both thorough and "a barrister with the ear of many decision makers." 
Chambers and Partners [2008]

" .. worked as a solicitor before he came to the Bar: for many this means he "understands a client's needs in a way other barristers can't." A lawyer who offers "marvelous practical input," he is "pleasant, personable and efficient"..                   
Chambers and Partners [2009]

" .. is a ‘calm advocate'  who ‘concentrates on what will win the case‘..
