I joined YVA after many years as a Partner at a well known North London firm.

On my first day everyone was super helpful and friendly and couldn’t do enough to help me settle in and feel part of the wider YVA family.

On the weekend I am woken up by my two little girls, so there are no late starts for me. After a weekend full of activities and family fun, I do try to continue with my boxing and exercise to keep me fit and healthy. I love films and a good old Cypriot BBQ.
