Ben Willis, who has recently joined our Construction team as a Managing Associate after 10 years at Womble Bond Dickinson, gives us an insight into his life outside law…
If you weren’t a lawyer, what would you be?
When I was young I really wanted to be a palaeontologist. I always fancied going round the world digging up dinosaurs!
What was the last book you read and would you recommend it?
Total Competition: Lessons in Strategy from Formula One by Ross Brawn and Adam Parr. A fascinating insight into F1 and wider lessons which apply to all of us in business.
What luxury item would you take with you to a desert island?
My wetsuit. Being a bit of a triathlete, I would definitely try and swim back to civilisation. Or end up as shark food.
Which film star would play you in a movie about your life?
If I’d gone down the palaeontology route, Harrison Ford as dinosaur digging equivalent to Indiana Jones!
Where haven’t you been in the world that you would most like to visit?
Costa Rica. It seemingly has everything – volcanos, two oceans, rainforest, wildlife.
