The law hasn’t always been Alan’s true calling in life. In fact before studying and training to be a lawyer he actually completed an apprenticeship and worked for seven years as an upholsterer.
Since 2007, however, Alan has been a part of the fabric at Muckle, where his experience as a specialist commercial contracts lawyer has been brought to bear across a diverse range of contractual and transactional arrangements, advising organisations operating in both the public and private sectors.
Alan’s expertise has enabled him to become involved in energy-related matters and the renewables sector. This has included advising an international business on the capture, and subsequent transfer to the Gas Grid, of biogas from a waste treatment plant; assisting a port authority with the drafting negotiation and implementation of a handling and logistics agreement for biomass materials; helping a development company with grid-offer and electrical-connectivity agreements in relation to a photovoltaic array in Lincolnshire; and advising a University on its involvement with electric vehicles, as well as the access and use of charging points.
