My role

I am a consultant in 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 on legal and strategic issues, applying the relevant legislation and case law in a pragmatic and common-sense way to the circumstances our clients are facing, and working in an imaginative and creative way to achieve their objectives. 

My experience

I have over 30 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 between 2011-2021 specialising in local authority law. I am in demand as a speaker and trainer in local government matters and used to working with senior officers and elected members.
