Q&A

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

Successfully overturning a summary judgment relating to breach of fiduciary duty in the Court of Appeal. The successful appeal led to a global settlement for the client in a longstanding and unpleasant piece of litigation.

How did you get into private client?

I always wanted to work for and with individuals and so it was a natural fit from the outset of my training as a solicitor.

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.

What is your favourite quote?

"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen,” Winston Churchill.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

I am passionate about grassroots football and run a multi-team football club.

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

Thompson, St Albans.
