I am a dispute resolution and litigation lawyer specialising in public procurement. I act both for bidders and contracting authorities across a range of sectors including transport, education, manufacturing, construction, health and social care, and technology. I advise clients on all aspects of bringing or defending a procurement challenge, including dealing with pre-action disclosure, applications to lift the automatic suspension, pursuing alternative dispute resolution and the management of litigation to trial. I am recognised as an "Associate to watch" in the field of public procurement by Chambers UK and am a member of the Procurement Lawyers' Association.
In addition, I assist clients in relation to commercial disputes, particularly those arising from public contracts. I have also acted on several complex judicial reviews involving challenges to the reconfiguration of public services, consultation processes and the application of the public sector equality duty.
- Bristol Missing Link v Bristol City Council  EWHC 876 (TCC) – in which we successfully defended an application by the contracting authority to lift the automatic suspension in a procurement challenge.
- Openview v London Borough of Merton  EWHC 2694 (TCC) – representing the contracting authority in a procurement challenge, including managing a large-scale, complex e-disclosure process, up to settlement at mediation.
- R (RB) v Devon County Council and Devon Primary Care Trust  EWHC 3597 (Admin) – acting for the Defendants in a challenge to the compliance of a complex procurement process with the Public Sector Equality Duty.
- R (Luton Borough Council and others) v The Secretary of State for Education  EWHC 217 (Admin) – in which we obtained an order quashing the Secretary of State's decision to cancel funding for school building on the basis of failure to consult and breach of the Public Sector Equality Duty.
She put a lot of thought and imagination into our case and felt our position should be put across as passionately as possible
