Q&A

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

I am probably the best known private client adviser in East Asia; I do Family Governance work (from both a psychological and legal point of view) for some of the top Forbes list entrepreneurs in Asia, and I am involved in complex trust advisory work. I often present innovative solutions to clients which usually will help prevent family disputes.

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

Recognise that the private client world is becoming much more international and changing faster than any other legal area. Keep up to date and have vision as to the way the private client world is going before others do.
