Jeremy was called to the Bar in 2004, having previously led teams as an equity partner in two international law firms.

Jeremy was made a Fellow of the Institute of Licensing in 2017 in recognition of his wider contribution to the field of licensing.

He is qualified to accept instructions directly from the public under the Direct Public Access scheme.

Commenting, Andrew Tait QC Head of Chambers at FTB, said: "The appointment of Jeremy Phillips as Queen's Counsel is a fitting recognition of his exceptional skills and professionalism. This news is further testament to the strength and continuing development of our Chambers in the fields of licensing, regulation, planning/highways, mediation and as part of our overall public law practice."

Jeremy will be formally sworn in on 26 February 2018.
