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

It has been a rollercoaster year in so many ways. I have loved seeing how quickly we and our clients have adapted to interacting via technology. Whilst I hope that in the long term it will not replace face to face communications, I do think it has opened up so many new possibilities and it has been revolutionary in the context of highly fraught mediations.

How did you get into private client?

It rather found me. I completed my training contract at Farrer & Co and was drawn to contentious work, particularly disputes involving private clients, whether in the context of contested wills or estates.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

Tennis, running, spending time with my young family, long country walks and bike rides.

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

A country pub near me in Hampshire called the Wellington Arms.
