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

Being in the honoured position of becoming a truly trusted adviser to a family with UK, Israeli, French and US connections. It is work that I love for a family that treats me as one of them. This year alone, I have been invited to a bar mitzvah, a wedding and a funeral. Being in this position has helped me to move beyond advising only on specific tax or succession problems, and instead help them with the bigger picture.

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

Never forget to be yourself – that is what clients, colleagues and intermediaries respond to.

What is your favourite quote?

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou.
