Maria Short


Maria is new to local government and joined nplaw recently as a lawyer in our Dispute Resolution and Governance Team in October 2021.

Having obtained a four year BA (Hons) Business Law degree with a third year industrial placement, Maria trained in private practice and was admitted as a solicitor in 2010 and worked as newly qualified lawyer in a niche commercial firm in Hampshire.

Following a relocation to Norfolk, Maria worked for a local NHS Foundation Trust as a Contracts Manager working alternatively with operational, clinical and service leads, and with local clinical commissioning group teams, NHS England and Public Health England as well as with sub-contracting partner and providers within the wider NHS, private sector and third sector organisations where the Trust commissioned its own contracts.

Maria retuned to private practice for several years working for two reputable regional firms in Norfolk working in litigation and commercial areas of law on a variety of matters for local individuals and businesses.
