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

Setting up our law firm with my partner, Adam Hugill, in September 2018 has been a huge highlight, as we are now a practice with over 20 members, half of whom are practising solicitors. We have taken on a number of new instructions, some of them are fascinating in terms of both legal and factual issues.

How did you get into private client?

A prominent case for Stanley Ho Hung-sun introduced me to the world of private client. Ten years ago, I was involved in a family dispute in relation to his assets. Since then, we have established a reputation for dealing with contentious and non-contentious estates.

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

Patience - Being a good listener set yourself apart from a lot of your peers.
Compassion - Understanding their concerns and resolve their issues with your special knowledge and wisdom.

“You reap what you sow: Life is like a boomerang. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.” Grant M. Bright
