Philip, from Higgs & Sons in Brierley Hill has been qualified as a family lawyer for 11 years and has been actively involved with Resolution, which represents almost 250 family lawyers in the West Midlands, since 2008.

"Resolution plays a central role both locally and nationally in promoting the benefits of taking a positive approach to resolving family disputes, as well as campaigning for improvements to family law," said Philip.

"I'm honoured to have been chosen by other family lawyers in the West Midlands to chair the regional group and look forward to working with members in the region to promote Resolution's distinctive and valuable approach to family breakdown."

Philip was recently commended in the Chambers & Partners Guide to the UK Legal Profession 2011 as a leading individual and was praised for his ability to communicate effectively with his clients.

Philip takes over as chairman from Birmingham-based Zahra Pabani, who was chair of the West Midlands region for five years. Zahra has stepped down in order to stand for election to the national committee of Resolution, which represents 5,500 lawyers nationally.

Zahra added: "I am delighted that Philip has been elected and feel that he, along with the strong regional committee, will take Resolution in the West Midlands from strength to strength. As one of the largest and most active regional committees in the UK, the West Midlands has an important role to play in developing the practice of family law."
