Q&A

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

I continue to represent UHNW clients in dealing with their contentious and non-contentious matters including wealth planning arrangements for their next generation.

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

Given that private client is a niche practice, they should have a good foundation by learning from the specialists in this field. For contentious young practitioners, they should aim to develop their advocacy skills by representing clients in court hearings so that they can acquire firsthand experience which is essential for advising clients in litigious matters.

What is your favourite quote?

A good settlement is one which leaves the parties feeling a bit dissatisfied but at the same time they don’t consider to have succeeded or failed in their case.
