Bio:-

I worked for Biggart Baillie LLP between 2004 and 2006. I qualified in January 2006. During my time at Biggarts, I worked predominantly in corporate, projects and large-scale property deals. During this time I helped advise South Lanarkshire Council on their £394M - Secondary Schools Modernisation Programme PPP.

I joined Dickson Minto’s leading private equity team in 2006 and worked on MBOs, large-scale financings and insurance-brokerage acquisitions, and my main clients were based in Australia, Italy and the UK.

I then joined Lester Aldridge in 2007 to work within the Commercial Group. My experience in private equity, public companies, projects and IP/IT made up most of my practice. From June 2007, I worked on largescale procurements for the Projects Team and began building an expertise in construction law. During this time I acted in a Chambers Directory ranked team for a major defence contractor on their successful bid as part of the Airtanker consortium for the largest defence PFI in the UK to date, to construct and maintain the MOD’s £13Bn Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft. 

In 2010 I joined Energos/Waste Gas Technology (part of ENER-G plc), where I was responsible for contracts on UK and overseas projects, e.g. working on the £950m Derby Waste PFI.

In 2011 I worked for a top three global, French law firm, and TMT company, before joining Padero Solaer and then Maypole/Bright Funding to work on UK groundmount, rooftop, residential portfolio, CEE and African solar pv plants.

I now specialise in corporate, projects and regulatory advice in renewable energy and energy-IT.
