• I am a governance specialist and lead partner for NHS and public law issues within our Commercial and Infrastructure department. I also have responsibility for leading our support to  all clients in competition and state aid  law. My work involves advising on constitutional, powers and general commercial issues for NHS bodies and wider health and social care organisations, including local social services authorities, as well as advising on the development of services, policies and procedures.

    I have advised a number of NHS foundation trusts and CCGs on their governance arrangements, on the scope and limitations of their powers, and in drafting their constitutions. My work also covers contractual and regulatory issues for primary care trusts when dealing with primary care practitioners.

    I also advise public bodies, particularly from the health and local government sectors, on a diverse range of issues relating to powers, decision making and governance arrangements. I specialise in relationships between health authorities and local government through both formal and informal agreements, and provide guidance to clients on issues surrounding governance and commissioning arrangements.

    In competition law I have advised on state aid issues and the implications of the merger regime for NHs bodies, as well as issues arising out of compliance with the Competition act.
