Philip graduated in law in 1974 and also holds a Master of Arts (Social Sciences).
Having joined the firm in 1995, he became a Partner in 2000 and leads the company’s flagship Industrial and Employment practice. Philip has acted in cases in front of the High Court of Australia and at numerous Federal Court proceedings on behalf of unions involved in highly contentious matters such as registration and de-registration.

Already he has commenced proceedings on behalf of RCT clients relying on the new provisions. In addition to his wealth of experience in industrial law, Philip practices in the areas of employment law and superannuation.
Prior to joining RCT, he worked as a Union industrial officer.
