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

I oversaw the complete restructure of a sizable family office of the trust, working alongside a Swiss law firm.

How did you get into private client?

With a great deal of good fortune! I began my legal career as a "courtroom" litigator. During my early years I was lucky enough to have the chance to work on several major and lengthy contentious trust law cases and in doing so I gained invaluable experience of the way in which private wealth holding structures should be properly governed and administered. My practice has evolved over time to the point where I now advise high net worth individuals, their service providers and their family offices in relation to a wide variety of non-contentious issues.

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

Do not be afraid to ask questions.

What is your favourite quote?

"Hold to the now, the here, through which all future plunges to the past." James Joyce

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

I enjoy surfing and spending time with the family.

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

The curries at El Tico, a beachside restaurant in St Ouen's Bay, Jersey, are fabulous. The views at high tide are stunning!
