About

I'm a practising solicitor with Flint Bishop and I'm also an associate lecturer in licensing law. 

Experience in industry

I qualified as a solicitor in 1994 and I have experience of working in Local Government – I was responsible for the implementation of the Licensing Act 2003 in Derby. I now specialise exclusively in licensing and regulatory law.

I'm an experienced licensing advocate, having dealt with a large number of complex applications for new premises licences, major variations of premises licence and reviews. I also prosecute on behalf of trading standards departments.
