• I specialise in advising on governance, commercial and contractual issues, with a particular focus on local government and health clients. I regularly advise on partnering arrangements, structures for joint working for the delivery of public services and high value outsourcing.

    Key areas of my work have included advising on, negotiating and drafting documentation on Children's Trusts (and Alternative Delivery Models), including advice in relation to core contractual terms, support service agreements, governance arrangements, performance frameworks and service specifications.

    Other contractual advice I have provided has included advising on and drafting contracts for Social Impact Bonds and Section 75 Agreements.

    I also have experience of strategy, policy and project management in the charity and education sectors.



    I have written several articles including:
