Me in a minute

I enjoy the fact that I work in a technical area of law but one which also requires emotional intelligence and empathy

I came to the law quite late, after spending several years working in museums in the UK and abroad. The skills I learned doing curatorial work are well suited to law - the ability to analyse and understand complex issues and to present information clearly and precisely matters to curators as well as lawyers.

I look after wealthy individuals, their families and trustees and advise on a wide range of tax and succession issues. Most of my work is international in its outlook and some clients have little or no connection with the UK.

I enjoy the fact that I work in a technical area of law but one which also requires emotional intelligence and empathy. I like getting to know clients and understanding their family dynamics as I think it is important to understand the factors which affect their decision-making. It is always satisfying to be able to provide clients with practical solutions for estate planning.
