Justin L.W. Phillips LL.B, APIL


Justin read Laws at Kings College London and was called to the Bar in England in 2008 by Lincoln's Inn. He was called to the Bar of Gibraltar in November 2008, after which he did his pupillage with Charles Salter, a Pupil Supervisor approved by Lincoln's Inn.

Justin has specialised in litigation, particularly in advocacy. He appears regularly in the Magistrates' Court, the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal in Gibraltar.

Justin has a recognised ability to form clear idea of the strengths and weaknesses of a case at an early stage which enables him not only to meet client expectations but also to ensure that, whenever possible, a positive outcome is achieved on the best possible terms for the client at the earliest possible stage.

Justin is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and regularly attends APIL conferences in the UK in order to ensure professional development in his personal injury and clinical negligence practice, where he has had significant success, acting mainly for Claimants but also for Defendants. He has substantial experience in this area of litigation and has acted for protected parties and in cases involving catastrophic injuries.

Justin also has expertise in Public Law litigation and has acted successfully in Judicial Review claims against various Government Ministries.

He also acts as an advocate in other High Court civil litigation, including financial services and insurance litigation, high value divorce proceedings, professional negligence claims, and claims involving allegations of fraud and conspiracy.
