We take great pride in what we do and how we do it.

Philip Lee, Managing Partner


Although no two law firms have exactly the same culture and outlook, differentiating between them can be a challenge.  At Philip Lee we place a premium not just on legal knowledge but on the ability to push, prod and provoke.  We have talented lawyers, each among the best in their field.  Depth of experience and the innovative intelligence that creates not just insight, but foresight: these are the qualities we value in Philip Lee.
