Nick Phillips_ Managing Partner/Solicitor

What others say about me_

“I simply can’t speak highly enough of the whole team there and Nick in particular. You’ll get great, honest advice”.   Richard Mossman, Finance Director, Certeco

“Nick Phillips recently acted for me and not only is he a first rate lawyer he was more like a confidant than a lawyer.  From the very first meeting he quickly understood and assessed, advising of an approach that was clear and realistic, putting my interests first at all times. I cannot recommend Nick highly enough, he is a credit to his profession and I am most grateful to him”.
