Taxi Licensing


Philip is experienced in advising local authorities on private hire and hackney carriage licensing

Philip was a member of the Law Commission’s Expert Panel on Plying for Hire.

He acted for the operators in the well-known case of Call a Cab Limited v Aylesbury Vale District Council, which concerned whether the Council had properly adopted private hire legislation, and therefore whether it could prosecute for breach of it.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your efforts in getting us to a successful conclusion at the appeal. Getting you on board was perhaps the defining moment. I have many good licensing lawyer friends and they all called me to say we had the right man for the job..
