• I am a health and social care regulatory lawyer with significant experience of advising health, social care and senior living clients (private, public and not for profit organisations) on service regulation.

    My practice includes advising clients on a number of contentious and non-contentious matters ranging from regulatory registration issues, post CQC inspection factual accuracy challenge work, regulatory enforcement work and representing clients in appeals to the First Tier Tribunal and in criminal proceedings. I also undertake due diligence support for clients on the regulatory issues arising in the acquisitions of businesses. I further help prepare and train Executive and Non-Executive Board members, along with senior management teams, for CQC inspections, providing training and undertaking mock interviews on CQC “Well-Led” and governance issues. More widely I have also undertaken and advise on serious incident investigations.

    I am recognised for being an approachable and friendly advisor to my clients, providing practical and business critical advice. I regularly give talks on regulatory developments and other key changes in the sector.
