How long have you been at Kennedys for?

I have worked in the Dubai office at Kennedys for three and a half years.

How has your career grown since starting at Kennedys?

I grew up and practised law in Sydney before joining Kennedys in Dubai. Since starting at Kennedys I have learned a whole different market, law, and culture. I have also been promoted in the meantime - so my careers has grown.

What is your one piece of advice for those starting out in their careers?

Try to get involved in tasks and work outside of your immediate area of interest and comfort zone. it will make you a more well-rounded player when you can understand different areas of law and how they interrelate.
