Q&A

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

Working with parents of adult children at war and using mediation skills to get a consensus on the future ownership and management of the family wealth. This is closely followed by finalising two related estates after years of family conflict.

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

It is not a cushy option, as the demands on you will tend to increase year on year. That said, the work can be hugely stimulating and rewarding, provided you remember who pays the bills and why.

“There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit,” Ronald Reagan.

Q&A

Working on a high profile matter involving a dispute over heritage art. The legal aspects of the dispute are highly technical in an evolving area of Judge-made law and I have a fantastic relationship with the client.

Keep going!
