I am a solicitor in the Litigation, Advisory and Regulatory department.
I act for a range of commissioners and suppliers, both public and private sector, in relation to disputes over the procurement of goods and services governed by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. My work involves advising how disputes can be avoided and, when they do arise, how they can be resolved through negotiation, mediation and, where necessary, litigation. I recently acted in a high profile multi-party judicial review of a central government procurement which was selected by "The Lawyer" as one of the top 20 cases of 2016. I also advise on contract disputes and restitutionary claims arising from the outsourcing and delivery of public services.
Before qualifying as a solicitor I worked for over ten years in the social housing sector and have a particular interest in local authority housing law. I advise local authorities and registered providers on their housing functions including statutory homelessness and allocations, and the development of new models for the provision of accommodation.
