I like to begin my day with a workout so I wake up at 6.00am and head to the gym. I then grab breakfast - I truly deserve a ham and cheese croissant and coffee today after an intensive spin class - and head to the office.
I look through my emails. I respond as much as I can before the first client meeting of the day.
I receive a telephone call from a marketing agent regarding one of our property matters requesting my attendance for signing of a collective sale agreement this afternoon, as the subsidiary proprietor will be going overseas for a long period.
I usually try to tackle complex matters in the earlier part of the day so today I am drafting an application relating to child custody and access.
I prefer to bring in lunch or get my lunch delivered as the eating-places around the office get very crowded. I had chicken tacos from a Mexican restaurant today.
I head out of the office for a meeting with the subsidiary proprietor of a development that is currently undergoing the en bloc process for signing of a collective sale agreement. Signing sessions for en bloc matters is an opportunity to meet people from all backgrounds including influential individuals and celebrities.
I have another offsite meeting with a new client intending to get a divorce.
Back at the office it’s time for a coffee break in the pantry and quick chat with some colleagues.
I initiate a discussion with a partner in relation to a potential settlement of a divorce matter at mediation and then draft advice to the client providing pros and cons of the settlement.
I leave the office to meet a friend for dinner then head home. I pack my gym kit for the next day and get ready for bed.
