Q&A

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

Helping clients with the uncertainties created by the pandemic and also exceeding clients' expectations of service levels during office closures. I have also continued to lead and grow a great team in Jersey which is the largest of its kind in the island.

How did you get into private client?

I was a commercial lawyer in Eversheds in the UK and decided I wanted a career change in the area I was specialising in. Jersey was a jurisdiction I wanted to work in and I wanted to deal with people on a personal level, too. Private client seemed like the perfect medium! I’m still here 17 years later.

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

The last year has again shown the need to be adaptable and sensitive to clients' needs and concerns. It is essential to remember that there are real people behind the structures.

What is your favourite quote?

"You will climb only as high as your mind lets you." Robyn Erbesfield.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

I am a huge cricket fan and enjoy gardening.

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

The Atlantic in Jersey – it has got fabulous views and great food.
