Working for BAA plc for over 25 years undertaking a variety of business and commercial roles, whilst qualifying as a solicitor.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2004 as in-house counsel for BAA plc. The role was wide ranging and diverse and as a result I gained high level legal experience in the following areas; contract law, commercial law, procurement rules and contracts, construction law (including industry standard contracts and bespoke risked based contracts for T5), general employment, and company law.
I have a strong understanding of commercial, risk, operational and business issues, which provide a valuable combination of skills to analyse situations from a variety of perspectives and provide innovative solutions
In 2011 I embarked on a new and exciting challenge using my knowledge and experience to develop my own consultancy business in East Sussex providing contractual and mediation solutions in a relaxed and friendly environment. My aim is to provide high quality, cost effective advice and services to SME's and business start-ups.
As a working mum myself I understand the need for a work life balance and the pressures of juggling family commitments and running your own business. I like to put my clients at ease and I operate an informal relaxed approach. You will often find me working in my local coffee shop.
