“The opportunity to understand our clients’ circumstances so that our advice is practical, insightful and tactically correct is paramount."
“Having spent a significant part of my working life running a large business, and now maintaining a variety of independent board positions, I know the importance of providing relevant, business orientated, success driven, advice.”
“The continuation of my work on a global scale, moving from business in the film and advertising industries to private practice, has enabled my experience to be channelled into assisting our clients.”
