What will the law firm of the future look like? 

The law firm of the future will be closer and more connected to its customers. It will always be self-questioning and have proven expertise in consulting and dispute resolution. A strong network and a high level of social consciousness will also be important.

If you weren’t a lawyer, how would you earn your living? 

I considered becoming a doctor. The two professions are very similar – in both you have to make a clear diagnosis of  a situation and then give advice or take corrective measures. 

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? 

As a young lawyer preparing for a major hearing I was told: Be brief, make a difference yet remain yourself. Simple and efficient advice!
