Sophie St. John has been appointed private client partner at RSM, with immediate effect.

St. John, who joins the client legal services practice of the audit, tax and consulting firm, was previously at Barclays Wealth and Investment Management where she was lead counsel specialising in trust work. 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.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have secured Sophie’s talent, commented Carolyn Brown, RSM’s head of client legal services. “She is ideally suited to direct our private client legal services in a way that complements and enhances RSM’s existing private wealth expertise.”

The addition to the head count at RSM follows recent news that the firm has appointed 288 new trainees in the UK.
