• I am a commercial lawyer specialising in complex contractual arrangements, including outsourcing, strategic partnerships, public-private partnerships and IT/technology contracts.

    I advise clients mostly in the public sector, including central government, arm’s length bodies, local government, other local authorities (including police and fire authorities) and private sector suppliers operating in this sector.

    I have particular experience in leading high-profile and high-value public procurement projects, managing multi-disciplinary teams and helping clients navigate the complexity of highly complex procurement exercises.
