Alistair is a trainee solicitor at Browne Jacobson working in the public law, environment and planning team advising public bodies on a wide range of environmental, governance, decision making, consultation, statutory interpretation and vires issues.

Alistair previously completed seats in the criminal compliance and regulatory (CCR) team, advising on fire, health and safety and environmental regulation and enforcement, and in the Construction team, advising on contentious and non-contentious construction matters.

Alistair previously worked for over 20 years in the environmental sector as a policy expert and advocate at UK, European, and global levels for government agencies, research institutions, and civil society organisations.

For Alistair, retraining as a solicitor is a chance to take on a new challenge and use his previous experience to assist clients across the private and public sectors in complying with a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape and adapting to accelerating environmental change.
