Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past five years?

A key highlight of the last 5 years has been my elevation to Head of Private Client in 2016. I have overseen the growth of the private client partnership from 10 to 15, which adds significantly to Forsters' international and offshore private client capacity and complements the firm's already well established profile for onshore work.
I also oversaw the acquisition and integration of the London Private Client team from Gowling LWG.

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

To be a rising star, it is imperative that at the earliest stage in your career you choose an area of specialism to gain recognition. To build a successful network, you must become known as an expert in your field.
