I am a Director in the Regulatory Group and specialise in public and regulatory work. I specialise in public inquiries, inquests and investigations.
I am experienced in advising on and carrying out investigations including high profile and complex public inquiries, investigations and inquests. This includes leading multi-disciplinary teams, large scale document review, evidence gathering, and preparing for and managing the hearing process. I also have experience of providing support and advice to witnesses asked to give evidence at public inquiries.
I am highly organised and able to effectively plan and manage projects on time and budget. My advice is pragmatic and clearly highlights legal risks, potential mitigations and lessons learned. I am experienced in building and leading multi-disciplinary teams ensuring that everyone works cohesively in order to deliver on behalf of the client.
Additionally, I have experience of advising clients in relation to challenges to public law decisions including policies, of applications under s.13 of the Coroners Act 1988 (including assessing the conduct and practice of inquests, advising on the application of coronial law and best practice, making recommendations and highlighting lessons learned) and experience of working in cases involving National Security and the Public Interest.
I am a member of the Association of Regulatory and Disciplinary Lawyers.
