Q&A

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

A lengthy hearing relating to whether or not Guernsey recognises the rule against reflective loss and, if so, whether or not it applies within the trust context.

How did you get into private client?

My first involvement came via trust litigation whilst working in the Cayman Islands on the Esteem and Jahre litigations.

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

There is no substitute for taking the time to get to know and understand your client's drivers in any given situation: only then will you really be able to move matters forward.

What is your favourite quote?

“You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.”

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

I am President of Guernsey's Chamber of Commerce and a part-time lecturer on Civil Litigation for the Guernsey Bar.

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

Pier 17, Guernsey .
