Notts County Council lawyer wins national award

The award recognises and rewards the most outstanding young solicitors in the local government legal profession. Apart from the glass award and the acclaim of being the 2009 Young Solicitor of the Year, Nathalie will receive a Red Letter day of her choice for her and her partner.

Nathalie has won the award for her innovative work and raising the profile of local government solicitors. She is currently dealing with letting out contracts to organisations that care for people with acute needs on behalf of the County Council where she has worked to reduce costs for the authority by working with partners in the East Midlands.

She has recently helped to clerk the Council’s Planning and Licensing Committee when it dealt with the Council’s largest planning application in over a decade for an energy recovery facility in Nottinghamshire. She is also a member of the National Executive of Solicitors in Local Government where she has worked hard to ensure young solicitors are represented on the group.

Nathalie said: -I am delighted to have won this award which I receive very much on the behalf of the team I work with.

-I take a ‘can do’ attitude to my work to ensure that the needs of my council colleagues are met within legal means – there is no point in putting up unnecessary hurdles or not finding ways a round a legal problem.

Nathalie was nominated by the County Council’s Chief Executive Mick Burrows and Head Of Legal Services Heather Dickinson.
