I am an associate in the Commercial and Infrastructure department specialising in advising local authorities, NHS bodies, registered providers and other organisations on construction and EU public procurement law.
The construction advice I provide covers development projects, regeneration schemes and on-going asset management programmes across the commercial development, social housing, leisure and health sectors. As part of this I draft, advise on and negotiate on behalf of clients standard form building contracts, bespoke development arrangements, professional appointments and related security documents.
I also provide strategic and operational advice on the application of the public procurement legislation and compliance with those requirements. This includes advising on group structures, use of frameworks, changes or extensions to existing contracts and joint ventures, as well as advising on and drafting documents for procurement procedures carried out under the regulations. I also assist in relation to legal challenges, both bringing and defending actions. Advice provided is practical and risk-based, taking account of clients' positions and priorities.
I also provide training on issues in construction and public procurement law.
