TLT expands public sector procurement offering with legal director hire


TLT continues to grow its national public sector team with the appointment of Nathalia Perera as legal director in its commercial services group.

Nathalia, who joins from Pinsent Masons as a specialist in public procurement law, brings a wealth of experience to the firm, having advised numerous government departments, including the Ministry of Justice, Department of Health and Social Care, and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. Nathalia also brings invaluable experience from her time at Birmingham City Council prior to starting her career in law.

At TLT, Nathalia will work within the firm’s public sector team, providing advice on all aspects of the procurement process to its central government clients.

Nathalia’s appointment further increases the firm’s public sector offering, and her experience complements TLT’s near-legal consulting services which provides clients with a one-stop shop for public procurement, from strategy and design through to governance, regulatory affairs and assurance.

Caroline Ramsay, partner at TLT says:

“Nathalia’s previous experience perfectly complements that of our existing high-calibre public sector team, and her insight from working within a local authority provides us with a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by our public sector clients.

“This is a time of change for our clients and we are seeing a continued increase in demand for public procurement support. Nathalia’s appointment demonstrates our continued investment in the firm’s public sector offering and follows several high-profile public sector panel appointments, including the UK government’s newly established trade law panel.”

Nathalia Perera, legal director at TLT, says:

“I’m pleased to be joining TLT at such an exciting time, with major changes in the regulatory landscape and a transformation of public procurement on the horizon, which will present both challenges and opportunities for the firm’s public sector clients.

“I am excited by the quality and type of work on offer at TLT, and am looking forward to being part of a collaborative and inclusive firm, which focuses on innovation and isn’t afraid to push the boundaries for the benefit of its clients. The development of its co-sourcing model for clients – where our lawyers become an extension of the client team – is a great example of the types of client service innovation I really admire.”
