• I lead the firm's Housing team and specialise in transactional construction law with a focus on formulating effective procurement and contracting strategies for both capital projects and long-term asset management programmes. My work encompasses corporate and contractual joint ventures, development agreements, construction contracts, framework and term contracts, consultant appointments and all associated security documentation.

    I specialise in arrangements for new build and refurbishment works for regeneration, mixed-use, housing and office developments, contractual joint venture and documentation. I also advise procuring authorities, funders and contractors who work alongside or within the housing sector.

    Through working with clients at the interface of the public and private sectors, I have amassed a great deal of experience in advising authorities on how to get the best out of the competitive dialogue procurement process. I also have unique expertise in guiding bidders on how to maximise their chance of success through the adoption of the most appropriate bid strategy.

    I have contributed articles to Inside Housing and The Municipal Journal.
