The legal team at Fareham Borough Council has been recognised for its outstanding work with a top national award.
The Council's lawyers, The Southampton and Fareham Legal Services Partnership team, were named National Legal Team of the Year in the Lawyers in Local Government Awards, against tough opposition.
The legal team was also awarded Runner Up in the Litigation Team of the Year category at the awards ceremony.
It is the second year in a row the team has been given an award, last year named Project Team of the Year. The award was given in recognition of its teamwork for supporting innovative projects such as Welborne Garden Village.
The partnership was formed in 2011 and is delivered by Southampton City Council's Legal Services team and managed for Fareham by the Head of Democratic Services.
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward, said: "I'm delighted that the hard work of the Legal Partnership has been recognised with this prestigious national award.
"Well done to everyone in the team who played a part in us winning such a coveted award. It's the second year in a row that the partnership has been recognised for its hard work after providing crucial legal advice in a number of cases."
