What has been your greatest achievement, in a professional and personal capability?

I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to argue a number of cases before the Supreme Court. But by far my greatest “achievement” is our three wonderful boys - though my wife probably deserves more of the credit there than I do.


What do you do differently from your peers in the industry?

Not sure if it’s a difference, but I pride myself on being extremely hands-on with everything we file in court.


What advice would you give to your younger self?

No matter how smart you think you are, there is sometimes no substitute for experience.


Can you give me a practical example of how you helped a client add value to the business?

In my line of work, one usually adds value by winning.


Within your sector, what do you think will be the biggest challenge for clients over the next 12 months?

Everyone will be coming to terms with the upcoming nomination and confirmation of a new Justice to the Supreme Court. It will be a very different place without Justice Kennedy.
