Patricia has over 30 years' experience in legal practice in Scotland and England and Wales. She is a leading expert in advising public and private sector clients on consenting, regulatory and compliance matters in relation to renewable technologies from EfW to wave and tidal. With a focus in energy and natural resources, Patricia advises developers on consenting strategy in multi-application scenarios. Her practice covers the early stages of the development consenting process, strategic environmental assessment and environmental impact assessment, planning due diligence and the cross over with environmental permitting, which blends well with the contentious focus of the planning team. In addition to development consenting, Patricia provides general environmental support on corporate and property deals (due diligence, warranties and environmental indemnities) and on environmental prosecutions.
Patricia is Chairman of Scottish Renewables, and she is a member of RenewableUK's consents and licensing group.
