Philip Hodson has been described as “one of Manchester’s legal royalty”

Having achieved both his Bachelors and Masters Degree at Oxford University, Philip began his legal career with Manchester City Council. Shortly after this Philip went on to take up a partnership position with Leak Almond and Parkinson, which in 1987, merged with Cobbetts Solicitors.

During his time with Cobbetts Solicitors, Philip progressed to become the Head of the Litigation Department. This gave Philip the opportunity to experience all perspectives of the litigation process. Philip was able to understand the reasoning behind litigation decision making, from both a claimant and defendant point of view. This makes Philip an authority on the most complicated of law suits. Philip’s hard work and dedication also earned him a position on Cobbetts management committee.

As a result of his position with Cobbetts, in 1996, Philip was recruited as a Consultant with another large personal injury solicitors firm. Philip focused his mind on the uninsured loss recovery industry, with particular attention to personal injury.

Philip is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

Philip has, over the years, worked closely with senior barristers on all kinds of complex cases. It would not be unfair to say that Phillip has encountered pretty much every type of complexity associated with a personal injury case. Philip is always available to discuss complicated points of law within the personal injury field.
