When did you join CDH?

I joined CDH in January 2001 as a Candidate Attorney and have developed to the role of Practice Head for the Finance and Banking department.

What makes CDH unique?

We pride ourselves on having a different culture from other firms that focuses on our people and providing clients with  legal expertise that entails a very clear understanding of their business needs.

As a practice head what advice would you give to CAs that aim to become directors and leaders in industry?

  1.  Focus at the work at hand and always seek advice from your seniors.

  2. A positive attitude towards your fellow employees will go a long way towards your career progression.

  3. "In most things success depends on knowing how long it takes to succeed." – Enlightenment political philosopher Montesquieu.

In my downtime...

I spend time with my family and enjoy attending my boys' soccer practice and games. I also get involved in community activities and like to balance my time by going to the gym.
