Q&A

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

It has been a very exciting year and it is hard to think of just one thing, when engaging with women in Saudi Arabia during this period of extraordinary advancements in women's rights and creating a philanthropic solution to an artist's global tax issues. The highlight however would have to be successfully defending a client against an IRS levy to satisfy an erroneous claim for more than $100m in tax.

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

We continue to learn throughout our careers. It is vital to surround yourself with the most talented people possible and get "good work" so that you fully develop your skills.
