Q&A

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

Negotiation of a complex tax ruling among the transfer of shares of a Swiss real estate company into a Channel Islands trust. Related tax and estate planning questions.

How did you get into private client?

Interest in personal contacts.

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

A good private client lawyer must be very qualified but should also have other interests outside the legal world. Only a global knowledge of the society allows understanding our clients’ true needs and thoughts. Do never forget to read serious newspapers and take some time to go to exhibitions!

What is your favourite quote?

“Ad astra per aspera,” Lucius Annaeus Seneca.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

I have young children, but I suppose this is more than a hobby, still very time-consuming though! Jokes aside, I am very fond of classical music and have been advising the Verbier Festival for several years now (I am formally the secretary to the foundation board). The Verbier Festival belongs to the top10 classical music events of the world.

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

Osteria della Bottega, Geneva.
