Q&A

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

Being involved in Guernsey's first successful Hastings-Bass application was a major highlight in terms of instructions and work, but the real highlight has been building the Private Client and Trusts team and client base at Ogier in Guernsey. Building Guernsey's leading non-contentious trusts team from scratch, and under the Ogier culture of "doing things differently", has been a genuine career highlight.

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

There are probably two pieces of advice that I see as critical. Firstly, that client relationships are paramount; and secondly, that innovation and technology are key, in terms of continuing to improve client service.

What is your favourite quote?
