Philip Kolvin QC, is Head of Chambers at Cornerstone Barristers. He is also the Chairman of the Purple Flag Advisory Board, and was Chairman of the Institute of Licensing from 2004-2011.
Philip has drawn upon a wide range of expert practitioners to contribute to various chapters. The overall effect is not only very impressive but extraordinarily useful. With an innovative approach toward the layout, this promises to be an authoritative and extremely heavily used text...I have little doubt that it will form a central part of the licensing practitioner's bookshelf and it is highly recommended. * James Button & Co Solicitors *
