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

There have been several very large contentious trust matters I have worked across several jurisdictions.

How did you get into private client?

Many would say, by mistake. One thing led to another. You get one case which you do quite well, and then your opponent comes back with another case.

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

Work hard, play hard.

What is your favourite quote?

“Never leave to tomorrow that which you can do today." Benjamin Franklin.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

Horses primarily. Good food, good wine and good friends.

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

The local curry house.
