About Frank

A graduate in accountancy and law, much of Frank’s work is at the interface between public and private sectors.

In his early career he was involved in a number of government privatisations and then led project teams working in private finance initiative projects (particularly in the health and education sectors). He has been involved in other major government projects including providing advice to DfE in the development of its Academies and Free School programmes.

In the transport sector, Frank undertakes local transport advisory engagements including statutory partnerships between transport authorities and bus operators and smart ticketing projects.

Frank also has a specialist practice working with businesses in the rapidly emerging education technology sector. His education work extends into the skills sector with advisory engagements for training providers and employers under both levied and non levied apprenticeship funding arrangements.

Frank undertakes broader commercial work (including international trade) and has particular experience working with domestic appliance manufacturers and shopping centre and leisure complex managers meeting the specific requirements they have for legal advice.

Frank advises on a range of government procurements including advice in circumstances of non-compliance with EU procurement rules. He is an expert advisor in data protection and has supported a number of businesses in their GDPR compliance programmes. Frank is one of the UK’s first legal advisors to be focusing on the emerging EdTech Sector and is a sought after speaker at events in the sector
