Philip Lee, as founder and managing partner of the firm, has many accomplishments to his name.
The most recent occurred during the June Bank Holiday weekend in Cognac, France where he won a Gold Medal in the European Fencing Championships. The title win is a first ever for an Irishman.
Philip, from Pembroke Fencing Club in Dublin was competing in the 60+ Veteran category and defeated two-time world champion Paul Wedge from the UK.
His previous best was 6th place in the World Championships in 2017.
Speaking at what was undoubtedly a special moment for him, Philip Lee said: ’When I heard the National Anthem played as I stood on the winners podium, I felt it was a significant moment for Irish fencing, putting us on the map internationally as we continue to grow the sport at home”.
