Doing work I enjoy for clients I like.

Q&A

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

Being promoted to Legal Director and being welcomed into the senior leadership team at Mishcon.

How did you get into private client?

My second seat of my training contract was private client and instantly found the area of law and its clients to be fascinating. I never looked back and committed to qualifying as a private tax and wealth planning solicitor.

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

Private client is an intellectually rigorous area of law. Clients are more likely to trust and be persuaded by people whom they regard as authoritative experts. You cannot afford to scrimp on the black letter. Study, attend courses, read all of the relevant technical books, write articles, respond to consultations, join industry panels and committees etc.

What is your favourite quote?

“The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits,” Albert Einstein.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

Sleeping.

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

The Trading House, Gresham Street.

Q&A

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

Overseeing the reorganisation and transfer into trust of shares in two companies owning a large commercial property portfolio and a landed estate. The reorganisation should save the family involved several millions of pounds, and serve to provide a practical and efficient structure for transmission of the assets to the second and third generations.

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

As someone once said to me, the secret of success is simple: do a good job and don't be an a***hole.
