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

I was delighted to be promoted to partner at Penningtons Manches in April this year, having joined the firm as a trainee in 2009. It is a privilege to work in such a dynamic and aspiring team and I am excited to be part of its continuing development and growth.

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

(1) Find a mentor – having someone supporting you and invested in your career is invaluable.
(2) Search for the aspects of your work that interest and inspire you, and look for ways to develop your practice towards them. When work challenges you with competing demands and a heavy caseload, having a genuine enthusiasm and interest in what you do is very important.
(3) Understand what your values are, both within and outside work.
