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

I have advised a number of non-domiciled individuals on the ‘cleansing’ opportunity, which closed on 5 April 2019. The HMRC rules and practice were incredibly complex and my role was to navigate through the provisions and apply in practice, under a time constraint, to achieve the objective of generating clean capital which could be used in the UK. The end result of these exercises was extremely valuable for our clients, allowing them efficient access to monies in the UK which they did not previously have.

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

Always put yourself in the shoes of the client. The technical side of the work we do should be given, but it’s the approach and client experience which garners success, and this is only achieved through understanding what the client wants.

What sets you apart from your peers?

We are genuine partner-led service and I am very ‘hands on’ with all my clients. Client service is absolutely central to everything we do, and is never compromised.

What is your favourite quote?

Treat others how you would want to be treated in life
