“Although I am, of course, very sorry to be leaving the practice which I founded, I am really looking forward to the new challenges ahead. I have very much enjoyed my time at McDaniels, but I am now keen to embrace the new life and career that awaits me. As I leave McDaniels, I am delighted that there are now so many talented people there. I am honoured to have worked alongside so many excellent and dedicated people and confident a most successful future lies ahead for the firm.”
