EXPERTISE

Bradley is consistently recognised as a "rising star" (Legal 500), with public procurement expertise developed in advising on, and drafting, the full suite of procurement documents and procurement strategy/options for a plethora of procurement processes from service agreements to major regeneration projects. 

In addition, Bradley is experienced in handling any other matters which arise during procurement processes and after contract completion (such as late bid submissions and compliant contract modifications). As a natural extension, he advises both private sector clients challenging procurement outcomes and public sector clients defending challenges. This wide experience means he is able to successfully plan and lead procurements for public bodies which minimise risk of challenge.
