60-second interview: Ziva Robertson

As she settles into her new role, Ziva Robertson wants to follow her new firm's US lead, she tells Jennifer Palmer-Violet

26 September 2013

What attracted you to McDermott Will & Emery?

I was impressed by the firm's international platform, reputation in the market, and the team in the London office. I have worked previously with a number of partners at McDermott (including Astrid Owen, who was with me at Withers) and the opportunity to build up a contentious trust and estate practice in the firm's London office was simply too good to pass.

What immediate and long-term priorities do you face in your ?new role?

The immediate priority is providing excellent service to all my clients, and ensuring continuity for the clients who followed me to my new firm. In the longer term, we aim to position the firm's London private client practice as ?a leader in the field.

In the US, McDermott has a reputation for this type of work, and together with my new partners we are committed to replicating that success ?in London.
