What is the best way to stay connected to the issues that affect your clients?

Keep yourself informed about the sector and its business. Your best source of information remains the client. It’s important to discuss general developments and challenges in their business with them as well as any legal challenges they face. Getting to know your client and their sector helps you shape your opinions and advice in a more pragmatic manner.

Which connections in your life have enhanced or progressed your career the most?

Besides close friends and family, it is the people who I view as mentors who have instilled in me the confidence and strength to progress my career. In addition, long time clients have championed me along the way.

FaceTime or face-to-face?

A combination of both. Current technology allows for efficient virtual meetings. However, I do believe that, to enhance a connection with the client, face-to-face contact is required. It is my experience that clients are more likely to provide you with the sensitive details of a case in a personal meeting.
