I specialise in procurement, joint working arrangements/PPPs and commercial work, acting for a variety of organisations across the public, private and third sector.
Procurement and outsourcing
Since joining Clarkslegal in 2005, I have seen a vast amount of change in the legal arena. The legal landscape applying to the procurement process continues to change, whether by way of EU directives, domestic legislation, case law or guidance. I ensure that my clients, who are subject to the procurement rules and regulations, undertake procurement processes that are efficient, cost effective and legally compliant from inception to contract award and post completion of the contract.
I have supported numerous clients in formulating their procurement strategy. I also assist clients in their early (pre-commencement of the procurement process) engagement with the market, which can be useful in terms of informing and developing procurement strategy. I am experienced in all of the procurement processes and I draft and advise on all associated tender and contractual documentation including the selection and evaluation methodology to be applied and post award contract variations.
I also advise clients on the application of the procurement rules and regulations to an organisation’s works and/or services offering, and I provide legal advice and support to organisations tendering for a public contract. I ensure a client’s conduct and submission is in line with the contracting authority’s instructions and as competitive as possible with factors, such as, the evaluation criteria, in mind.
Governance and joint working arrangements
These joint working arrangements, for clients from all sectors, are key as they ensure each party’s rights and obligations are formalised, and I generally prepare or advise on memorandums of understanding, collaboration agreements and inter authority agreements to capture the principles agreed by the parties.
I also advise on the creation of committee, joint committee and subcommittee arrangements and processes, and I draft associated documentation. When advising local authority clients, I ensure any joint committee is created and the constitution is drafted in accordance with statutory requirements.
Commercial and contractual law
I also act on behalf of a number of higher education institutions, providing advice on a variety of matters focussing on commercial, procurement and outsourcing matters.
Before joining Clarkslegal in 2005, I worked in-house for a local authority as a solicitor and the Freedom of Information officer. I trained all senior officers and politicians and drafted associated policy documentation. Since joining Clarkslegal, I have continued to advise clients on their obligations in respect of responding to written requests for information in accordance with the Freedom of information Act and Environmental Information Regulations.
