Q&A

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

Appearing twice in the UK Supreme Court: failing (predictably) to preserve the rule in Hastings-Bass (but hopefully making it more difficult for the Court); but successfully expanding the scope of rectification of wills.

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

Stick to it for a career that will be rewarding in more senses than one.

What is your favourite quote?

"I was reading a book the other day."
"Reading a book!"
"Yes. It's all about civilization or something, a nutty kind of a book. Do you know that the guy said that machinery is going to take the place of every profession?"
"Oh, my dear, that's something you need never worry about."
Conversation between Marie Dressler and Jean Harlow in Dinner at Eight (1933).
