Phillips practises all areas of family law, but prefers to specialise in financial matters concerning complex divorce and separation proceedings. She qualified in 2007, becoming the youngest ever partner at niche practice Ross & Craig, before joining the ‘dynamic, modern and forwardthinking’ Soho-based Simons Muirhead & Burton in October 2014 — traits she says she was looking for in her next team. This rising star is clear on how Britain’s esteemed legal system is beginning to show its age. ‘Family law still has many grey areas that a lot of Law Commission reports have prepared responses to, but nothing has actually been done about them,’ she says. ‘I think we need less talk and more action, certainly in relation to pre-nuptial agreements and co-habitation rights.’
