Q&A

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

The growth of my global BVI dispute resolution team (with 8 new lawyers since lockdown began). In particular, David Welford joined us as a partner in Jersey in June 2020 specifically to expand our contentious BVI private wealth advice to European based trustees and private client lawyers.

How did you get into private client?

By moving offshore!

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

Focus on the solution that is required and then cast your mind far and wide for a route to that solution.

What is your favourite quote?

"It is the mark of a trained mind never to look for greater precision in the treatment of a subject than the nature of that subject permits." Aristotle.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

Travel and restaurants. It's not been a great year for either.

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

The 10 Cases in Covent Garden, London.
