My role

I am a partner in our construction and public procurement team operating within the local government, care and social housing sectors. I lead a team of lawyers working with clients within specialist sectors to resolve difficulties arising from construction and maintenance issues and public procurement processes. I am also a compliance officer for legal practice for our firm which is a role I fulfil for our regulator. In addition, I am an experienced commercial mediator and I carry out mediations for parties in dispute and also train clients in mediation skills.

My experience

I have over 30 years experience of in helping clients to manage legal disputes within specialist sectors. I have a national reputation for resolving public procurement disputes and my team has been involved in some of the leading cases in this area. I have spoken at high profile conferences and written articles and thought pieces to assist clients in managing and avoiding construction and public procurement disputes. I am ranked as a “notable practitioner” by chambers 2015 for construction. Sources note that I am “excellent at providing reassurance” during disputes.
