Q&A

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

I have the opportunity to develop my Asia practice with the launch of our Hong Kong office. I am in the region fairly regularly (every 6-8 weeks). We have a strong private client pedigree which has been instrumental in charting our significant growth. The incredible feedback we are receiving from our clients has been encouraging and we forecast even stronger growth in the next 12 months.

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

Make the effort to build the network of contacts. Particularly for the technically driven private client lawyer, it can sometimes feel like a chore to 'BD'. I personally feel that networking is to key to generate good work streams.
