• I am an experienced local government and healthcare lawyer and I have been working with public sector clients for almost twenty years. I specialise in commercial, contractual and related procurement advice to a range of local government, healthcare and other public sector clients. I advise clients on commercial contract matters from general advisory work, to complex procurement, outsourcing and alternative delivery models for public services. I also specialise in collaboration agreements within the public sector, health and social care integration and have worked on a number of integration and joint working arrangements between local authorities and the NHS.

    My clients include local authorities, NHS commissioners and NHS Trusts and emergency services clients. I have also worked in-house within local authorities, managing their in-house legal Commercial Teams and have advised on a whole range of procurement matters, commercial contracts, collaboration and partnership agreements, grant funding and general constitutional advice.

    I am currently advising on contractual arrangements for an Extra Care Housing Project for a local authority client, assisting clients with variations to their Leisure Services Contracts and drafting and amending various contractual terms and conditions ranging from social care services to tree planting. I enjoy working alongside public sector clients and their internal teams, helping them  to have the best possible impact and deliver the required outcomes for their local communities and populations.
