I am a procurement lawyer and provide advice on public and utilities procurement, as well as commercial disputes to clients in the healthcare, local government and energy sectors. My work includes structuring projects, dealing with conflicts of interest, conducting competitive dialogue, negotiated procedures and open and restricted procedures. My particular specialism is risk management including dealing swiftly with issues that arise during the course of a procurement, at award stage, during the standstill period and beyond. I also advise on the drafting of procurement documents including PQQs, ITTs, standstill letters, clarification responses and VEAT notices. I also give procurement training with a particular focus on NHS procurement.
I have been involved in a number of reported procurement litigation cases dealing with complex issues of procurement law and judicial review. My dispute resolution expertise includes applications for interim relief, negotiation and mediation involving multiple parties.
I advise on contractual and other commercial disputes and regularly help clients reach commercial and practical solutions that avoid formal court or arbitration processes.
I am a member of the Procurement Lawyers Association.
