Q&A

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

The constant workflow of international estate planning projects, especially with the US, as well as developing several close and personal client relationships beyond the world of taxes and laws.

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

Develop your academic skills, write a lot, speak at conferences, but at the same time be an empathic person trying to listen to the client. Try to communicate clearly and not technically, be on time and be always totally reliable.
