Trusts litigation & disputed estates


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

Receiving a letter from the other side disclosing information my client has been asking to see for more than 18 months - it was a long, hard slog, but we eventually got there and my client was delighted.

How did you get into private client?

I was exposed to private client litigation during pupillage and decided it was the field for me.

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

Remember that clients are human beings and always try to look at things from their perspective. Communicate with empathy and don’t hide behind emails.

What is your favourite quote?

“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light,” Aristotle.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

In the pre-Covid world, I went to the opera a lot. I am currently focussing more on cinema and reading.

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

202 in Westbourne Grove.
