• I am a commercial lawyer specialising in European public procurement law. My work involves advising local authorities, NHS bodies, central government departments and other public bodies on the application of the procurement rules to their range of activities from establishing co-operation arrangements, to conducting public contract tendering exercises. I advise clients on planning for and conducting multi-stage procurement exercises from exploring competition and evaluation strategies, preparing procurement documentation, evaluating tenders, awarding contracts to debriefing bidders.

    I have advised on awarding contracts across a broad range of major project sectors including property development and regeneration, school building partnerships, municipal waste and energy management, leisure services, highways services, national framework agreements, rail franchising, IT projects, PFI hospital developments to NHS and community care services.

    Because I work across many markets I am able to pass on an in-depth knowledge of procurement approaches and innovation to help clients resolve their procurement strategies.

    The recent focus of my work has been in helping clients achieve efficiencies through establishing co-operation arrangements between public bodies to deliver shared services as well as advising on tendering strategic partnership joint ventures with the private sector to transform estates and services.

    I am involved in advising on legal challenges both in bringing and defending actions in relation to procurement award or elimination decisions.
