Q&A

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

Currently I am involved in two very large contentious trust matters, both of which involve $10bn at stake and are cross jurisdictional and highly complex.

How did you get into private client?

I got involved in trust litigation as its demand has increased sky-rocketed over the past ten years in Bermuda. Prior to that we had a wave of fund litigation in Bermuda.

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

Never forget the beneficiaries – bear in mind what you would want to happen if you were the settlor.

What is your favourite quote?

“Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.”

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

In Bermuda, I enjoy running and water sports.

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

Mickey’s, Bermuda.
