Notable cases include:
R v G
Phil defended one of five directors of a company prosecuted by the Inland Revenue in relation to non payment of tax. The case involved the largest amount of companies ever liquidated before the High Court on one single day. The matter was ultimately stayed as an abuse of process.
R v C
Phil defended in confiscation proceedings involving several million pounds. Owing to a mistake on the part of the prosecuting body, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the matter went to appeal in the High Court. Phil successfully prevented HMRC from recovering any of the assets HMRC claimed in the High Court.
