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

I have the honour and the privilege of working with a number of extremely fascinating clients from all over the world on their estate planning and personal affairs. My highlight in every 12 months is continuing to learn from the human nature of others particularly when mediating inter-generational succession planning discussions. I am also a tax geek and love the ever-continuing challenges of the ever-changing tax legislation relating to trusts and to non-UK domiciled individuals. Keeps me on my toes.

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

Have passion, have energy and don’t wait for opportunities to come looking for you, create them.

What is your favourite quote?

“Individual commitment to group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilisation work.” (Vincent Thomas Lombardi)
