Q&A

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

Founding the new law firm JurisAsia LLC in early 2017. This is a dynamic group of young and very smart lawyers who are able to expertly advise clients, comprising mainly of successful entrepreneurs, as they expand their businesses regionally and internationally. This is especially in new and developing areas such as blockchain & DLT related ventures, applying digitization initiatives to old industry companies and social enterprises and impact investing. Few aspects of the world are not capable of being impacted by these technological & ideological changes and our objective is to help our clients navigate through the legal and practical implications of these changes. This mission gets me up in the morning and keeps me going.

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

You are in a privileged role of advising some of the most successful families and individuals in the world. So respect that privilege by staying on top of your game and be so good, they can't ignore you.
