Philip is an in-house lawyer with some 20 years’ experience across several industry sectors, notably in financial services where he was Deputy Company Secretary at Abbey before joining Mercer Human Resource Consulting in 2006 as Head of Legal for Europe. Time in commercial private practice in London, followed by a long spell in the tobacco industry before joining Abbey in 1994, gives him a very broad spread of personal experiences to draw from.

He also spent some time out of the world of law in corporate strategy to give himself a different perspective on the in-house advisory function. He offers very practical insights into both practising law in-house as well as creating and managing legal teams, budgets and external legal panels.

Philip left Mercer in 2014
