Philippe is gespecialiseerd in (grensoverschrijdend) vennootschapsrecht, fusies en overnames en financieringen. Hij adviseert bij het opzetten van (internationale) joint ventures en heeft een bijzondere focus op transacties op het grensvlak van ondernemingsrecht, financiering en belastingrecht. Participatieregelingen, "special projects", eenmalige projecten waarin deze onderdelen en creativiteit samenkomen, zijn hier voorbeelden van. Hij houdt zich ook bezig met publiek-private samenwerkingen, beleggingsfondsen en herstructureringen. Philippe vindt creatieve oplossingen voor projecten met ogenschijnlijk moeilijk verenigbare uitgangspunten.
