I provide advice on a variety of public sector issues, including procurement, state aid, commercial contracts and other commercial considerations, including providing advice in relation to local authority trading companies, outsourcing and partnership arrangements. I work with a range of public bodies including local authorities, arms-length management organisations, universities and regulatory bodies. I have recently undertaken a secondment to an arms-length management organisation set up to manage social housing, where I provided advice in relation to procurement and contractual issues, including variations to contracts in compliance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, framework agreements and drafting a wide range of commercial contracts. My experience includes advising local authorities in relation to exemptions to the public procurement regime, including advice on public to public co-operation and Teckal vehicles, providing procurement advice and training to public sector organisations including on framework agreements, procurement exercises and state aid issues, drafting public contracts for goods and services, grant agreements and advising on state aid, commercial contracts and PFI issues.
