A commercial lawyer specialising in commercial contracts and company matters
I am a commercial lawyer at Anthony Collins Solicitors, leading on the provision of company and commercial advice to our clients across all sectors including education, housing, local government, charities and social business.
I qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and spent four years in private practice dealing with company and commercial, corporate M&A and corporate finance matters. I subsequently spent 12 years as an in-house lawyer at Birmingham City Council, providing commercial, procurement and governance advice in relation to major projects and contracts, followed by three years as head of legal for a local authority wholly-owned company.
