Me in a minute

I find myself challenged every day and I am always learning something new.

I spent four years studying Classics and my natural inclination for analysing complex, occasionally mystifying texts turned out to be excellent preparation for a career in law. I was soon drawn to private client work for the endless human interest element and the satisfaction of helping clients plan for their families and for the future.

At Withers I am privileged to work with the best in the private client industry. Private client is a genuinely fascinating area of law to be in right now, and our clients and the problems they face are a weathervane of what is going on across the world, politically, economically and socially. I find myself challenged every day and I am always learning something new.
