Katten Muchin Rosenman
Legal Week's Private Client Global Elite 2018:
What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?
To pull a rabbit out of a hat and solve a problem that lawyers on every side of the case declared was unsolvable, creating a win-win for all concerned.
What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?
While the nature of legal practice and being a lawyer is changing rapidly, the need for private client lawyers may be closer than most things to being a constant, since it is based on upon greed or opportunity but rather upon mortality - for which at least at the moment there is no cure.
What is your favourite quote?
"Ain't no use worrying about the things you can do something about, 'cause there's always something you can do about them. Ain't no use worrying about the things ain't nothing you can do about, 'cause ain't nothing you can do about them.”
