What advice would you give a trainee just starting out?

Learn from everyone around you (not just those senior to you), seize every opportunity and try and enjoy it!.

What do you do when you're not working? Any hobbies?

Cycling. Golf. Running. Skiing (I can't wait to get back to the Alps).

What would you do if you weren't a lawyer?

So many things. I've always quite liked the idea of being a speechwriter. Or owning a house somewhere beautiful like the south of France and running training camps.

What is the book you'd recommend to everyone?

Tricky. Probably William Boyd's Any Human Heart. Or The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach - it's a novel centred around baseball, which I know nothing about and am not particularly interested in, but I loved it and it stayed with me for quite a while.
