What is your favourite legal term?
Res judicata, which stands for the principle that once a claim had been adjudicated the matter is decided and cannot be heard again, nor can any claim which should properly have been heard at that time. In practice, it helps to keep our legal system running smoothly by providing certainty and ensuring parties must not hold back or split arguments for tactical gain.
What is your deepest obsession outside of work?
When time permits, I enjoy traveling and exploring new places. I have visited 28 countries thus far, and hope to keep adding to that.
