Q&A

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

A highlight for me this past year has been the deepening of relationships with the next generations of my client families. It has been a strategic priority for me to expand my relationships beyond the patriarchs and matriarchs I have traditionally advised, and the results have been very gratifying, not just in expanding business relationships but in developing new friendships as well.

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

Get out and meet everybody. Technical expertise is assumed by every client and potential client. Where you will distinguish yourself is through your Rolodex (if such a thing still exists!) or contact list.
