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

I have had the privilege of speaking at a number of industry events in recent years; both in the UK and overseas. Not only has this given me the opportunity to travel internationally, but it has also allowed me to engage in greater depth with the "hot topics" of the day.The interaction I have had with lawyers and intermediaries outside the UK has provided an invaluable insight into the perception and impact of our domestic rules in a cross-border context.

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

Knowledge is power! So take every opportunity you can to learn something new. But also accept that you will never know everything, and it's best not to pretend to! Take time to build a strong network around you who can help you fill in the gaps.
Above all, be conscious that the private client world is continually evolving, so be open to change and seize the opportunities that come with it.
