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

I have been very fortunate to work on some incredible cases and to have met some fascinating people, but the highlight of my practice over the past 5 years few months has been founding ConTrA (the Contentious Trusts Association) with Jessica Henson and seeing it go from strength to strength. ConTrA now has over 350 members and recently held its inaugural conference with over 100 attendees.

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

Getting to know your peers and colleagues is some of the best marketing you can ever do. You will be surrounded by these people for your career and, on a personal level, your career will be far more fulfilling if surrounded by friends.
