"She is incredibly smart. She has deep domestic and international experience, and her people judgement skills are excellent - what is often required in those situations is a really good knowledge of both the client's risk appetites and the prosecutor's attitude to risk, and she can calibrate the two." "She provides great value for money tied with extraordinary thoughtfulness. She is one of the most intelligent lawyers I know and is creative in her approach."
