Natalie is a Senior Associate in our Commercial Services Group and joined TLT after working as an in-house solicitor for a local authority where she advised on a wide range of commercial contracts, public law and public procurement issues.

Her local authority background means that she can support public sector commercial ventures by fully understanding the clients' needs and pressures, from a legal, commercial and political perspective.

Her dual role at TLT involves advising on all elements of public procurement matters from pre-procurement planning, through to advising on the selection, evaluation and de-briefing of market participants. This requires her to draft the full suite of tender and contractual documentation, provide advice on all stages of the public procurement procedure and on best practice in terms of legal risk mitigation.

She also acts as a commercial adviser on a wide range of contractual arrangements which involves her drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial arrangements for both our public and private sector clients.
