Me in a minute

I particularly enjoy working closely with my clients; my approach is to become part of their team, understand their unique drivers and requirements, which enables me to best advise them how to meet their investment or business needs.

As someone who is naturally inquisitive and a problem solver, the law was an appealing career from early on for me. A certain Boston-based legal comedy drama which aired on tv whilst I was young may also have steered me somewhat, and whilst there may be less singing karaoke than this programme led me to believe, I count myself very lucky to have found a career that I love.
