On his appointment Philip said: “Having met with Andrew and the Senior Management team at Plexus Law, I was really taken with their operational structure and their vision for the firm moving forwards. I am really excited about my new challenge and to be joining the firm at this time. As well as being able to expand on the existing catastrophic injury services already offered by the firm, the opportunity to play a wider part in helping Plexus go from strength to strength was an added incentive that really appealed to me.”

He has a well-earned and significant market reputation for his expertise in the catastrophic injury arena and already works for many of our clients. Philip will work closely with Jo Pizzala (Partner). With Philip’s arrival we are confident that we now have one of the market leading teams in this field.
