“Delivering sound legal advice is a vital part of the job but for me, building long term relationships with clients is just as important. I want to be seen as an extension of their business and work hard to build trust and gain an in-depth understanding of a client’s business and their objectives. This in turn allows me to provide advice that works for a client on a commercial level as well as legally.”
