Q&A

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

My law firm decided to open an office in Miami, focused on assisting Brazilian private clients who want to move to the US or to start a business in the US with their Brazilian legal issues.

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

Patience. Private clients are not a multinational company. They want to be pampered. You must make them feel like they are your most special and important client. Meetings could take from 30 minutes up to 4 hours. If a client wants to talk, you let him or her talk.
