With over 20 years’ experience as a commercial lawyer in the North East, Robin understands the region’s business and legal landscapes well.
He was educated at Oxford University and Nottingham Law School before returning to his native Newcastle after graduating, where he has worked as a solicitor ever since.
From general corporate transactions, education sector support and commercial contract work, to specialist advice on constitutional and governance matters, corporate structures and public procurement, Robin has the skills to support a wide range of issues. He’s also an energetic speaker and presenter and regularly gives talks on commercial law.
Outside his legal career, Robin is a keen runner and wasted no time in joining the Muckle Runners, launching into a training session during his first week with the company. He also swims, enjoys days on the hills in Northumberland or the Lake District with his family and is ‘addicted’ to skiing. To say Robin likes to keep busy would be a bit of an understatement.
