My role

I joined the firm as a paralegal in 2011 and have since gained experience in the property and governance and commercial teams, before qualifying into construction.

As a solicitor in the construction team, I support clients by drafting and advising on construction works contracts. I also provide advice on the competition rules, particularly relating to public procurement and State aid.

My experience

Since qualifying as a solicitor, I have supported clients by advising on and drafting construction and maintenance contracts, including development agreements for social housing clients.

I have also supported clients by advising on various elements of competition law, including public procurement and State aid across a range of sectors. Most recently, I contributed the legal chapter in the first book dedicated to achieving social value in construction.
