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. 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.
