Philip Spicer

Senior Partner Fraud

Philip has over 30 years experience as a Solicitor. He heads our white collar and complex crime department and regularly deals with high profile, complex and long running fraud matters, which invariably involve  voluminous documents and multiple allegations.

He is the leader of a hand picked team of experienced and dedicated Fraud Lawyers defending cases covering:

  • Cartel frauds,
  • Boiler room frauds,
  • MTIC frauds,
  • Mortgage frauds,
  • Banking frauds
  • VAT frauds
  • Tax frauds
  • Diversion cases
  • Trading Standards prosecutions
  • Confiscation cases.


Philip, amongst many other notable cases, has successfully represented a Defendant in an alleged price fixing cartel by various drug companies supplying the NHS. This was probably the largest and most complex fraud case to have been then prosecuted by the SFO. He acts for companies, directors, professionals, and members of the finance sector throughout the country.

Philip conducts cases from the investigation stage (where he is very hands on, preferring where possible, to be personally involved in the preparation by attending interviews and where appropriate making representations to the Prosecuting authorities ) to the Crown Court and beyond.

Philip is highly regarded by other lawyers including leading barristers / Queen’s Counsel and is often recommended by fellow professionals in complex fraud or to lead teams in substantial cases.
