Q&A

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

Without doubt, my promotion to partnership: it has enhanced my ability to bring my expertise and personal perspective to challenging cases and strengthen and deepen my relationships with clients.

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

Take the time to understand the real concerns and motivations of your clients. It is only with this understanding that you can hope to help them achieve their goals and provide valuable support in the process.
