philWe are delighted to announce that our senior partner, Philip Haberman, has been named Expert of the Year by Who’s Who Legal for the second year running, having been listed on Who’s Who Legal along with our other founding partner, Frank Ilett, for many years. Although personally proud of this achievement, Philip believes that the award is a reflection of our firm and our team as much as it is of his own position.

Since last winning this award, Philip has, along with the whole partner and director group, steered the firm through an exciting year, in which our experts have been engaged on many interesting and complex cases, including 10 appearances in the witness box.

In April 2015, Liz Perks and Bruno Augustin were made partners, promotions that have strengthened and widened our senior leadership team, leaving Haberman Ilett in a better position to meet the needs of our clients and their lawyers. We have also been joined by a number of new senior associates and associates over the last year, expanding that team to 25. The new joiners have brought with them a variety of experience and the team is in an excellent position to provide the support needed by the partners and directors to allow them to tackle the range and complexity of the cases that we are engaged on.

Philip believes that the most important factor in Haberman Ilett’s success over the last year is the way in which these individuals continue to work together, which gives him confidence that the firm will continue to grow from strength to strength over the coming years.

Everyone at Haberman Ilett shares Philip’s confidence in the future, and we are proud that Philip’s expertise and hard work has been recognised by Who’s Who Legal in this way.
