Ashurst, Solicitor (partner In Law Firm)

I am the Co-Head of Planning and Environmental law in a leading global law firm - Ashurst. Prior to joining Ashurst in January 2020, I was at Hogan Lovells (another global law firm) for 20 years, where I was Head of Planning. I specialise in all aspects of law relating to Town and Country planning, heritage, compulsory purchase, highways etc. I mainly help developers obtain planning permission for their lovely schemes!

I Have Undertaken Mentoring Several Times In The Past And It Has Gone Well. I Am From A Working Class Background And Can Remember Starting Out In My Career Not Having Gone To Private School Or The Best University Or Knowing Any Contacts In The Industry.
