Q&A

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

Being made a partner at Boodle Hatfield in 2017 is a clear career highlight so far. Representing (successfully, so far) the parties to a dispute in the High Court in England and Wales as the lead partner has added a certain gloss to my first full year in that role.

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

Some areas of law favour technical expertise over people skills, and vice versa. In private client, to really succeed, you need to focus on developing both.

Build and maintain good relationships with your counterparts. It is a small world; your opponent in one matter may be an ally in the next. Remain objective about your client's case.
