Prior to that she was with Speechly Bircham, Allen & Overy and Bircham Dyson Bell. Overall, St. John has 20 years’ experience as a private client solicitor.

St. John will provide tax and wealth advice to individuals, trustees and estates, adding a new service offering to the firm’s recently created client legal services practice.
