"I have tremendously benefitted from my coaching sessions. Ali has helped me sort out my thoughts on various issues ranging from firm governance to concrete actions on managing the team working with me on my cases. She is a great person to talk to; she puts the mirror in front of you and makes you realise what you may have not seen yourself."
