My role

I am a newly qualified solicitor in the construction and public procurement team. I advise on all aspects of procurement law and provide support on a variety of public sector projects.

My experience

Whilst training at a large commercial firm I completed a six-month secondment at HS2, the company responsible for developing and promoting the UK’s new high-speed rail network. There I gained significant experience advising on high-value procurements under the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016 and supporting community engagement projects.

Since working at Anthony Collins Solicitors, I have advised a range of contracting authorities on compliance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and intra-group procurement strategy. I have worked on large development-based projects and joint ventures, drafting both commercial and construction contracts.

My specialisms
