Q&A

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

Acting for the beneficiary in connection with a £multi-billion trust dispute involving Cayman, the UK, Netherland Antilles, Luxembourg and France. There have been issues of mental competence, cutting-edge tax complexities, issues of French legal privilege and complex corporate negotiations.

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

Work with as many different kinds of people as you can and learn as much as you can from each of them. Eventually you will sort out what will (and will not) work for you.
