About Wendy Morse

I am an experienced Solicitor with a background in procurement, contract and commercial law. I qualified as a Solicitor in 2008 and prior to joining Invicta Law, worked predominantly in local government.  

During my time as an in-house solicitor, my work included; advising on contracts and procurement projects at all stages of the commissioning cycle (from initial scoping through to securing a provider), advising on the applicable process, drafting of procurement documentation and the drafting of appropriate contracts (including negotiation of the same).  

I have experience in delivering multiple and complex projects within tight timeframes, budgets and to a high-quality standard and I have an in depth understanding of the Constitutional, Policy and political framework within which local authorities operate 

In addition, I have advised on a full range of local government matters, including the Localism Act, FOIA, DPA, vires, corporate structures and governance, both within complex projects and as stand-alone queries.  

I also have experience in PFI contract issues post execution and have advised on an Academies programme, drafting Commercial Transfer Agreements and acting as key point of contact for the client. 

I am constantly striving to deliver cost effective, quality legal services which are tailored to client’s needs.

Client testimonials

“Sarah provides excellent advice, often off the cuff at the end of the phone when urgent matters arise. She is extremely good at explaining the intricacies of planning law in layman’s terms, which is very much appreciated. Sarah is a reliable and conscientious colleague who I do not hesitate to contact for guidance and clarity in often high-pressured situations. She is well respected amongst her peers and colleagues, and officers very much appreciate her knowledge and calming influence.”
Planning & Highways Client
“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
Chair of School Governors
