Duncan joined Ashfords in March 2016 having spent 17 years working in the Legal Department for Teignbridge District Council, the last three years of which as the Solicitor to the Council. Duncan was also Deputy Monitoring Officer from 2007. His work for the Council encompassed a broad range of subject areas including governance, licensing, housing, environmental health, contracts and property. However the largest element of his practice was planning law.

Since joining Ashfords' Planning Team he has acted for a number of local authorities, most notably the London Borough of Wandsworth. He provides legal advice to Wandsworth's Planning Applications Committee and planning officers and acts for the council in drafting and negotiating Section 106 Agreements.
