Enhanced Q&A

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

Our ability to operate without interruption despite the challenges presented by the pandemic required ingenuity and a willingness to adapt, and showed a genuine commitment to care for our employees, clients and the wider community.

How did you get into private client?

People, families, relationships and a caring nature attracted me to private client work.

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

You can have it all―a career, a life and parenthood―but not all at the same time. At different times you need to prioritise different things.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

At the moment I would just love to go out with friends for dinner; it has been too long!

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

Murano’s. It is fabulous and where we held our daughter’s 21st.
