Practice Summary

Although living in Switzerland, Philip's practice has an international dimension. 

This includes the tracing of hidden assets in divorce and family law cases and in civil remidies for victims of fraud.

In the 1980’s he began his pro bono work, particularly for final appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in death penalty cases from the British Commonwealth countries.

Philip has appeared as amicus before many US State Supreme Courts including the presentation of oral argument. This culminated in the United States Supreme Court landmark decision [5-4] of Roper v Simmons 125 S. Ct. 1183 [March, 2005] whereby the death penalty was abolished throughout all of the United States for juvenile offenders.
