Philip has been associated with WHC since his daughters attended the E-T ECC at Temple and the WHC Primary School at the Julia Bindeman Suburban Center. In the years since, his family’s participation in congregational activities has expanded, and both of his daughters attended the Religious School and became b’not mitzvah. 

Philip recently retired as a partner with the international law firm Shearman & Sterling LLP, where he represented companies and individuals in white-collar matters and advised companies and their boards on a variety of compliance-related subjects. Prior to joining Shearman, he was the lead trial prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice for Foreign Corrupt Practices Act matters and assisted in negotiating international and European anti-corruption conventions. He is a “double ‘Hoo” with an undergraduate degree (with the highest distinction) from the University of Virginia and a J.D. from its law school. 

Philip lives in Bethesda with his wife, Melissa, his daughters, Emma and Chloe, and their three dogs.
