What will the law firm of the future look like?
It will be perceived as being a part of a client’s business as opposed to an external adviser. The importance of legal support teams and legal technology will also increase.
What was the most interesting cross-border, cross-discipline project that you were involved in?
I have been advising my longest standing client, the major Spanish hotel operator Meliá, on its German and international expansion for more than 20 years. It is the confidence that exists between the client and myself that makes this kind of relationship more exciting than any short-term project.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Advise clients on their business as if it were your own, and always consider the perspective of the other side too.
