Q&A

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

Victory in the Tchenguiz Litigation. This has been a hard fought battle over nearly 10 years and has seen the end of claims against my client of over £500m as well as a groundbreaking judgment as to the proper interpretation of Article 32 of the Trust Jersey Law that has implications in many offshore jurisdictions.

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

Keep on good terms with your opponents in litigation, trust your instincts and have an interest outside the law.

What is your favourite quote?

"He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster," Friedrich Nietzsche.
