• I am a barrister specialising in local authority and governance law. I have extensive experience in providing regulatory and governance advice to clients including local government and other public bodies, including Housing Associations, National Park Authorities and healthcare regulators. I am also experienced in conducting standards investigations and the provision of advice around a variety of regulatory areas and information law, including GDPR and FOIA. I have experience in the role of Deputy Monitoring Officer and I am a member of the Specialist Regulatory Advocates Panel.

    Prior to joining Bevan Brittan I worked for Scarborough Borough Council for seven years, before spending three years as a tenant in New Park Court Chambers, at the self-employed Bar, where I was often instructed to deal with local authority advices and prosecutions, as a result of my experience in local government. During this time I conducted a number of standards investigations, advised upon a number of complex licensing and planning applications and represented local authorities, DEFRA and the Health and Safety Executive across a wide range of prosecutions.

    My in-house experience, together with my time working alongside local authorities in self-employed practice, gives me a unique perspective on, and understanding of, the many and varied challenges faced by the public sector on a daily basis.
