Q&A

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

Advising an international family on an initial expatriation event from the US and subsequent entry back into US residency. This involved significant planning with regards existing non-US trusts and structuring of gifts.

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

Be interested in your clients. Advice is so much more powerful if you understand the drivers & motivations of your clients.

What sets you apart from your peers?

I have been fortunate to work at Frank Hirth for almost 20 years, which has given me the ability to have a specialist focused area (trust & estate) within a wider private client practice. This has allowed me to go beyond a “generalist” approach to the area that I focus on l, but still allowing me exposure to other issues facing the private client.
