The head of chambers from dissolved set 199 Strand David Phillips QC has joined Wilberforce Chambers.
Phillips is a highly-respected commercial barrister with recent involvement in a series of high-profile football disputes and a particular expertise in road transport regulatory work.
"Over the past few years, a disproportionate amount of my time has been spent on administration. I was happy to do it, but Wilberforce is such an efficient and well-run set that I won't have to do that here," he said. Phillips has acted for Chelsea and Middlesbrough football clubs on a series of transfer disputes and advised Fulham on its litigation with former manager Jean Tigana. He also maintains a broad-based commercial practice.
Phillips is the second barrister from 199 to join Wilberforce following the arrival of Martin Hutchings last month. The other 199 tenants are gradually finding new homes.
Senior-junior Francis Treasure is going to clinical negligence and personal injury set 22 Old Buildings; David Fisher is leaving for chancery set New Square Chambers; clinical negligence specialist Leslie Keegan is heading to 7 Bedford Row; 11 Stone Buildings has picked up commercial practitioner Amanda Eillidge; and Enterprise Chambers is taking on property barrister Robert Duddridge.
