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

The pandemic has been a great leveller, and has brought us closer to our clients. We’ve all had more time to speak to each other and share personal experiences. I think we will come out of the current situation with more personal and deeper relationships.

How did you get into private client?

In my career, this has meant moving away from “standard structures” (I dislike that term and concept in the Private Wealth sphere!) and becoming the go-to person for bespoke solutions. By natural extension, this has given me the opportunity to get involved with UHNW families and their advisors.

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

Get to know the clients and understand their needs, then think about the structure. Not the other way around – that’s a common mistake

What is your favourite quote?

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

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

I can’t wait to go back to Octopus in Guernsey, or any of the Relais de Venise restaurants in London!
