Sameena Munir, associate in our private client team, has been featured in a Law Society Gazette article about professionals who are shaping the future of private client work. Sameena's work sees her focus on Court of Protection and supporting property and financial affairs deputies.
In this article, she comments on Diversity and inclusion and legal complexities. When asked about diversity and inclusion she said;
The firm encourages partners, fee earners and support staff to get involved with client and business development via different committees and networks. The firm takes social responsibility and inclusion seriously with active networks for diversity and inclusion, LGBTQ & Allies, environment and social mobility (to name a few). "
To help with business and client development, the firm is involved in campaigns focusing on specific areas/client groups such as Brexit, Anglo-French clients and private wealth. I think this is quite innovative."
Sameena also commented on the types of issues and legal complexities she has noticed during her time at Kingsley Napley;
International succession and mental capacity are major areas of work for us and I’m finding more of our clients own assets abroad or have international connections.
I think that the international element is an interesting development; as clients become ever more sophisticated and have international assets and businesses, you have to deal with those complexities, and clients expect you to understand and deal with this. We have to speak the language of the client."
