What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Apart from keeping busy, staying sane and alive? During the lockdown working with my colleagues in Guernsey and Geneva to broaden our firm’s message and together we made some really engaging content. Cometh the hour and all that…

How did you get into private client?

I love music and sport, especially motorsport, but was not good enough to make a living at either so… I dealt a lot with private aircraft early in my career which gave me a bit of a USP.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

You don’t have to be brilliant just be thoughtful.

You are not your clients and it’s about them not you.

Make sure you enjoy the journey.

Are you absolutely sure you want a career in Law?...

What is your favourite quote?

"If your life had lyrics, would they be any good?” – Douglas Coupland

When the restaurants reopen, where would you like to go?

The Ivy Club - very long lunch, you’re all welcome…
