Rhiannon is a Senior Associate in our Construction, Energy and Projects team. She predominantly advises on procurement, commercial, subsidy control and public funding matters.
Rhiannon undertakes significant and complex legal work, having spent 18 months (ending October 2019) in the prestigious role of Specialist Legal Adviser to the Counsel General and Brexit Minister of the Welsh Government. She is recognised by Legal 500 for being a Next Generation Lawyer for public sector work.
Rhiannon’s procurement expertise ranges from large scale and complex projects to the provision of ad hoc procurement advice. She supports clients bidding for public contracts and those seeking to award such contracts, ensuring procurement processes are legally compliant, enhance interest and competition in the contract opportunity, and are delivered within the relevant timescales and budget. Rhiannon also advises on subsidy control and funding matters.
Rhiannon delivers external training on a variety of topics, including framework agreements, procuring community benefits and procurement case law updates. Organisations Rhiannon has delivered seminars for includes the Welsh Government (in-house training delivered to Value Wales and to the Economic Development and Treasury Team within the Legal Services team), Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, Caerphilly County Borough Council and Natural Resources Wales.
Rhiannon is a trustee of toogoodtowaste, a charity that aims to reduce waste and alleviate poverty, and is the vice-chair of the charity’s finance sub-committee.
Rhiannon has not simply been an advisor but became an integral part of our project team and was at the heart of the decision-making process. I found Rhiannon to be not only an extremely skilled and knowledgeable lawyer but also a very likeable person who fitted seamlessly into our team. Rhiannon has the ability to provide advice that is sensible and practical in a confident and sensitive manner. She has a gift for explaining a complex legal position.
