Q&A

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

Providing continued stability to families during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our business efficiently transitioned to staff working from home in all offices with no impact on service levels. Whilst it was not possible to meet clients directly during this time we were still able to onboard new relationships due to our strong business network and our solid internal systems. We have also succeeded in meeting extremely tight transactional deadlines due to our multi- jurisdictional presence allowing us to progress transactions through different time zones.

How did you get into private client?

I am STEP qualified with over 20 years experience in the trust industry working in multiple jurisdictions.

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

Be interested. Give your best every day and embrace the facts.

What is your favourite quote?

“None of us is as smart as all of us”. At Clermont we have a very strong team and culture- highly qualified staff working towards a common goal, simply to deliver the best service possible to the families that we serve.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

I love to be in nature and therefore sailing, hiking and skiing are my favourite sports of mine. I am an extremely keen traveller when Covid permits! I am also fortunate enough to be godmother to two beautiful young girls and I spend as much time with them as I can.

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

My partner is an excellent Italian cook and so my preferred dining experience is when he makes his homemade tuna tartare, with a good bottle of wine and good company.
