Lucy Doran


Lucy specialises in the provision of advice on major projects and procurement, acting for both public and private sector.

She has acted as lead legal adviser on a number of large-scale infrastructure projects, drafting and negotiating the contracts and running and advising on the procurement procedure. She works across a number of sectors including outsourcing, NHS, education, regeneration and housing.

As well as being a transactional lawyer, Lucy also specialises in procurement. She advises public sector clients from inception stage onwards, applying her knowledge and experience to create sustainable delivery models. Where a procurement procedure is required, Lucy is often called upon for her expertise in tailoring and running the procedure to meet client requirements. She also advises on exemptions and models that can be established between public/private and public/public sector which do not require a procurement procedure.

She regularly advises on issues such as evaluation criteria, de-selection, scoping of OJEU notices and the interpretation and implementation of case-law, guidance and legislation.

Lucy has been recommended for her work in local government, PFI and PPPs by Legal 500.

"Lucy Doran provides standout depth of legal knowledge combined with the ability to explain things in a simple way."
