A specialist in legal and strategic advice to local authorities.
I lead the local government sector at Anthony Collins Solicitors, and work with a team of local government specialists and other lawyers across the firm to provide a full service offer to councils. We aim to work with councils as a trusted adviser, providing practical hands on advice, trying to apply the relevant legislation and case law to the circumstances our clients are facing, and working in an imaginative and creative way to achieve their objectives.
I have over thirty years’ experience as a solicitor and spent most of my career in the public sector, where I have been, amongst other roles, a chief executive, corporate director, head of legal services, and monitoring officer. I have been a partner in private practice since 2011, and specialise in local authority law. I am in demand as a speaker and trainer in local government matters.
