One of the leading licensing QCs in the country, Philip Kolvin, has joined 11KBW.
Kolvin’s practice spans all fields of licensing, including alcohol and entertainment, gambling, sexual entertainment, taxis, sport and the security industry.
He acts across the board for national and independent operators, national regulators and local authorities.
Kolvin is Patron of the Institute of Licensing, the professional body for licensing practitioners, a board member of the Sports Grounds Safety Authority and an Associate Fellow of Westminster University’s Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture. He is also a Recorder of the Crown Court, sitting as a Judge in jury trials in the Crown Court on a part-time basis.
Kolvin has written, edited or contributed to legal texts that, in his words, are “designed to further legal debate, instigate discourse regarding policy development and provide navigable pathways for practitioners”.
James Goudie QC, joint Head of Chambers, said: “We are delighted that Philip is joining 11KBW. His breadth and depth of experience and reputation in licensing is second-to-none and will enhance the service we can offer to clients in this field.”

His expertise will augment our highly-regarded practice areas of public, local government and regulatory law, and bring a new element to our work in judicial review, information law and inquests.”
