Me in a minute

Business development is about developing opportunities within and between people or organisations

I believe there are plenty of possibilities to be uncovered when people work together in new ways.

One of my favourite projects involves collaborating with Malaysian law firms for an international estate planning seminar in Kuala Lumpur. The panel consists of 5 Withers lawyers of different nationalities, age groups and professional experience, which presented new and practical insights to clients' multi-jurisdictional concerns.
