San Diego Daily Transcript Recognizes Young Professionals

Congratulations to Best Best & Krieger LLP attorney Nicholaus Norvell, who was named a Top 40 Under 40 professional in San Diego for 2020 by the San Diego Daily Transcript.
As a member of the firm’s Special Districts and Municipal Law practice groups, Nick’s work impacts the future of local, sustainable water supplies and clean and renewable energy.
He is working with the East County Advanced Water Purification Joint Powers Authority and other East County agencies to implement a $500 million program to produce 30 percent of East County’s drinking water by purifying recycled water. In addition, he is working with San Diego Community Power, the region’s newest public energy utility, to establish key programs and policies as SDCP works toward providing clean, renewable energy for the region starting in 2021.
In an interview with SDDT, Nick, a third-generation San Diegan, said he enjoys his practice that focuses on public agencies and water. "Being in California, the difficulty with which we get water, and the sources and contention over it, makes it a very interesting field to work in," Norvell said.
Prior to joining BB&K, Nick worked as a municipal and special districts law attorney in Sacramento, and he served as the assistant city attorney for the City of Pittsburg, Calif. Nick also worked as a law clerk at the U.S. Office of Government Ethics in Washington, D.C. and had a judicial externship in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. He also worked for U.S. Rep. Susan Davis of San Diego.
Outside his practice, Nick is a leader in the California Lawyers Association, serving as the new co-vice chair of publications for the Association’s Public Law Section. In his spare time, Nick has participated as a cyclist and ride leader for AIDS/Lifecycle, an annual seven-day bike ride to raise money for HIV/AIDS services.
