A Solicitor in construction and public procurement.
I joined the firm in June 2017 as a trainee solicitor, after completing the majority of my training at another Birmingham firm. I qualified as a solicitor in September 2017 into the Built Environment department, in the Construction and Public Procurement team. I have worked across a number of different sectors including social housing, banking, education and health and social care.
Whilst in construction I have advised and drafted various construction contracts; drafted reports in relation to public procurement focusing on client’s relationships with their subsidiaries; drafted reports and advised funders, purchasers and commercial tenants on construction documents; advised clients on the termination of different construction contracts; advised clients on other aspects of public procurement; and drafted articles used in training.
