Philip has appeared before all levels of court within the province both as trial and appellate counsel. He routinely appears in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal in both the civil and criminal context. Philip is the local agent for the Public Prosecution Service of Canada and therefore prosecutes federally enforced offences such as Controlled Drug and Substance Act offences, Canadian Cannabis Act violations, as well as any contravention under the Fisheries Act.
