My role

I co-lead our procurement and construction team, helping registered providers, local authorities, arms-length management organisations and buying clubs with all aspects of procurement and related arrangements, including governance structures.

My experience

My nearly 20 years here at Anthony Collins Solicitors followed seven years in-house in local government. After some time specialising in governance and large regeneration projects (including PFI/PPP), most of my work recently has involved helping clients with procurement, development and maintenance arrangements.

I wrote the National Housing Federations' 'Guide to the EU procurement rules', 'Authoritative practical guidance to the housing sector', and is discussing a 3rd edition with the National Housing Federation. Subsequent publications include the 'Contract management guide', working alongside echelon Consultancy and 'Procurement in Practice: Avoiding the pitfalls and getting the best result'.
