QnA

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

We represented a private client in relation to issues arising from his investment in a household name supercar brand. The matter was satisfactorily resolved at an early stage but being able to work on a highly complex matter involving a number of jurisdictions and dealing with an industry about which I am passionate was extremely rewarding.

How did you get into private client?

I've always enjoyed helping clients work through and resolve complicated legal issues. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to work on major private client matters ever since my training contract. Developing and nurturing that aspect of my practice ever since has been highly enjoyable.

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

Every day is a school day in our profession - never stop learning and seeking to improve yourself.

What is your favourite quote?

“If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds-worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And, which is more, you’ll be a Man, my son!” Rudyard Kipling.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

As a Francophile, I enjoy exploring different parts of France whenever possible whilst striving to improve my somewhat-rusty French. I also greatly enjoy learning about classic cars, motor sport and wine.

When the restaurants reopen, where would you like to go?

Ocean Restaurant at the Atlantic Hotel is very difficult to beat. Whilst slightly further away, I also love spending time at 67 Pall Mall in London which has fabulous food and an unbeatable wine selection.
