Dan joined Forbes in 2014, gaining experience in complex insurance litigation which involved advising clients in the construction and public sectors. In early 2017, Dan joined the Commercial team and moved to specialise in advising clients in the public, quasi-public and third sectors, predominantly in the fields of construction, procurement, social housing regulation, and education governance.
Dan has a particular interest in contracts and procurement law, with a focus on advising registered providers of social housing, educational institutions, and other public and charitable organisations. Dan has worked with a range of clients in these sectors including registered providers of social housing of all sizes, maintained schools to MATs, other charities and community entities including CIOs, and CICs.
Dan also regularly advises organisations from all sectors on data protection and freedom of information matters, including GDPR, PECR, and Environmental Information Regulations.
In particular, Dan enjoys finding real-world solutions to complex legal problems and tackling seemingly insurmountable issues with straightforward explanations, with a keen eye on the economic and commercial considerations which invariably frame the questions.
Dan is known to his clients and colleagues alike for his personable approach, and he always seeks to add practical insight to his legal advice. Dan regularly works alongside and engages with specialists from other departments to provide a joined up approach and well-rounded advice for all clients.
