She works in non-contentious situations stress-testing trust structures in light of changes in law and/or changes in family situations.

Me in a minute

I am acutely aware of the emotional strain of litigation... that's not to say I can't fight if I need to

I wasn't one of these people who always knew they wanted to be a lawyer, but now I can't imagine being better suited to any other job! I can usually find an argument in favour or against most positions. This, combined with being patient (which is how one of my clients described me to Legal 500) and possibly pedantic, makes litigation a neat fit.
