Philip Bennett is the Director of Child Law Partnership. He set up the practice in 2001 with a vision of developing a niche practice specialising in children and family law. Philip qualified as a solicitor in 1979 and shortly after became a partner in a high street practice.

Having studied both criminal law and family law early in his career, the establishment of the Children Act in 1991 accentuated his interest in child law and he began to practise exclusively in this area in the early 90’s. He was awarded a diploma in Child Law by Kings College London in 1994 and has specialised in proceedings relating to children for nearly two decades.

His particular interest and expertise lies in the international aspects of child law, including cases with a foreign element and inter-country adoption.

Member of the Law Society Children Panel since 1985. Member of Association of Lawyers for Children.
