Public Sector Expertise

Ruth is focussed on the public sector and manages many of our key relationships. These include Central and Local Government as well as other public sector organisations. Ruth trained and worked as a commercial property lawyer and so brings this perspective to help us deliver the best service possible to our clients.

Ruth's remit includes tenders and she works with colleagues across the firm on tendering activities and initiatives. She also provides a consultancy service for clients, advising and guiding them when they are tendering for contracts.

Ruth also works with a number of colleagues and contacts at the University of Edinburgh on the Edinburgh Foundation for Women in Law. The Foundation brings together senior women alumni at the Law School to share experiences and best practice from the legal profession on creating the conditions for women to succeed within this field.
