Working in the Private Client team has been, and always will be, very fulfilling for me. I thrive on the opportunity to blend excellent client care with imparting sound legal advice and support. The nature of the work means that I regularly deal with clients at times of loss and sadness and I recognise the need to handle matters in a sensitive yet efficient and professional manner.

I am delighted to be involved in Quartet Community Foundation. It is an exciting time for the charity and I look forward to building on the excellent foundations that have been laid and working closely with their team as I strongly believe in what they are working so hard to achieve.
