Q&A

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

The highlight of my practice over the past year has been rejoining my prior firm, Katten, and working with my former partners. I have also very much enjoyed working with my clients, both old and new, on their complicated, cross-border planning needs.

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

Find and attend the best conferences with the highest quality speakers addressing the tax laws and planning issues in their respective jurisdictions. Invest in your education and professional network. Stay abreast of current events on a worldwide basis.
