Sophie St John, Private Client Partner, RSM

Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has appointed Sophie St John as a private client partner in its client legal services practice.

Sophie, who has been a private client solicitor for 20 years, joins RSM Legal LLP from Barclays Wealth and Investment Management where she was lead counsel specialising in trust work. Prior to that she worked in the highly regarded private client divisions of Speechly Bircham, Allen & Overy and Bircham Dyson Bell.

The appointment adds a new service offering to RSM’s recently launched client legal services practice which currently offers employment, corporate, partnership and legal regulatory legal services. In her new role, Sophie will work closely with RSM’s private client practice which offers tax and wealth advice to individuals, trustees and estates.

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

Gary Heynes, RSM’s head of private client added: ‘RSM’s private client offering is already one of the largest tax advisory and compliance teams in the UK for individuals, trustees and estates. We are very pleased to extend our private client services through the recruitment of a private client legal partner to support our private client tax and wealth advice to our clients.’

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
