» Back To Department

Philip Bradbury is a Senior Litigation Executive in the Costs department at Express Solicitors, having joined the firm in July 2019.

Phil highlights, that the variety of cases that he gets to deal with on a day to day basis is one of many factors that contribute to what he likes best about his role. Phil went on to say “Every case is bespoke, which requires you to think outside the box and use all your previous knowledge and experience, especially when predicting the future development of the case lifespan. I enjoy being able to sit down and plan how cases will come to fruition with clients / acting Solicitors.”

Phil specialises in Cost management, with experience within Commercial Litigation, Clinical negligence, High Value Catastrophic and Claimant Personal Injury.

Phil has over 12 years Costs Drafting experience, and comments how he is very organised and is always willing to go that extra mile for a client or instructing Solicitor. Phil is always keen to building excellent relationships and client management skills across a variety of different areas as well as being a team player within the Firm and Costs department.

Prior to joining Express Solicitors, Phil managed a team of up to 8 Fee Earners in a Manchester office which solely worked on Costs Budgets. And has also published a number of articles in a number of respected legal publications- from the Litigation Future to The Law Gazette.

Phil lives in Glossop, Derbyshire.

Since hanging up his football boots, Phil qualified as a football and goalkeeping coach, where he coached all ages over the last 12 years. Phil has also taken part in many 10k runs including charity runs such as Genesis Breast Cancer and the Autistic Society and recently climbed Ben Nevis for a local charity Rueben’s Retreat.

“Big passion for music, I’ve enjoyed attending 100’s of gigs over the years across the Country. I’m currently loving being a part time roadie for my “not so” youngest son’s band and have recently had the pleasure of spending 4 days “Glamping” at a festival which they played at.”

“In relation to travel, I’ve got the “go as far as you can whilst you can attitude” and over the last few years have visited Thailand, The Maldives, Mauritius, New York, Chicago and Michigan State where my eldest was studying at University.”

Phil’s favourite quote is by Maya Angelou-

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”.
