Q&A

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

Client referrals - it shows that the client has been impressed. Other attorneys/competitors referring clients or family members to me and/or hiring me for their own work.
Winning at the 2017 Powerwomen Awards for Woman of the Year Leadership (Professional Services) Gold. Our Private Client and Trusts Team winning awards through STEP, Citywealth, Legal 500 and others.

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

Stay current - the world is constantly changing as are the needs of private clients. Do not stagnate. Keep ahead of the game. Try to adapt to new innovations and technologies. Constantly learn, take new seminars and courses. Retain connections and network.
