Philippa's Teams

Family, Agriculture


Philippa joined Lanyon Bowdler as a partner in May 2020. She is based at the Hereford office where she specialises in family law. She is highly experienced in divorce law, and in financial matters involving pensions, business assets and landed estates, and has a particular interest in pre-nuptial agreements.

She is a member of Resolution and subscribes to their code of conduct, and therefore seeks to find solutions to the issues that arise out of family breakdown in as amicable and constructive a manner as possible.

Philippa has been qualified since 1988 and was a partner in London until 2004 when she escaped to the Welsh Marches with her husband to be near the family (who are Welsh and West Midlands based) and to raise their own family (two teenage girls and accompanying animals).

She is a highly-respected voice in family law and has written a number of legal books, including the Lawpack’s DIY Separation and Divorce guide. Philippa used to be a regular voice on BBC Radio 2's Jeremy Vine show.

Philippa loves singing and drama (but not in the court room) and is involved with the Hereford Festival of Performing Arts each year organising poetry and drama for the children of the county.

Legal 500 Recommendation

Philippa is recognised as a Recommended Lawyer in the 2022 edition of The Legal 500.

Client Testimonials

Philippa was so calm and straightforward. She presented me with the legal information I needed, in a format I understood in a reassuring way and made what (for me) was an emotionally distressing situation much easier. Philippa acted in my best interests and recommended against pursuing any challenges that might have cost me more money.
