Q&A

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

I have become the head of private wealth sector in the firm and created a sector that comprises of over 60 lawyers throughout the firm. My clients worth has increased to UHNW and the complexity of the work has also increased. Our reputation, and also mine, are now established, a difficult task from a Bristol base.

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

Do this job if you love the technical challenges every day, and people. It is a demanding, fulfilling job, but clients will want 100% all the time, and the complexity of what we do means that you are always under pressure. Get to know your competitors.
