Q&A

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

I have had a few highlights. I was honored one year ago to be selected to the initial Global Elite list. My firm selected me to lead the Private Wealth Services group, which is the largest such group in the US. Furthermore, I have served as an adjunct professor for the last 12 years teaching the LLM to taxation students. But my highest honour remains serving my client families and advising them on their wealth planning and business succession issues. I allow them to focus on growing their wealth.

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

The most exciting and dynamic space is the global ultra high net worth area as these families are operating businesses, expanding real estate empires and creating new technologies. This is a world that matters and the young adviser has an opportunity here.

Too often advisers and clients lose focus and identify too many issues when there are but a few that truly matter in order to obtain the bulk of the benefit. The better advisers can keep the client focused.

What is your favourite quote?

"Don't let perfect be the enemy of the good."

Q&A

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

Within the last year I graduated with a juris doctor (after years of being a practicing civil law attorney I decided to go back to school to become a fully trained US attorney), I became a member of the Florida bar, and started working as an associate at Shutts.

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

Find a good mentor, copy good practices from seasoned attorneys, and never underestimate the importance of networking.

What is your favourite quote?

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On!’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race,” Calvin Coolidge.
