BDB Pitmans welcomes two new legal directors to its well-established private client practice. High-end property expert Lorna du Sautoy joins the private real estate team, and tax specialist Sophie St John joins the private wealth team. Both appointments are effective immediately.

Lorna du Sautoy joins from Macfarlanes LLP, where she completed her training contract and has practiced as a Senior Solicitor in private client property for nearly eight years. Lorna has an extensive client base, providing practical and quality advice to prime and super prime London residential property and other luxury property assets. Her international clientele includes high net worth individuals and their companies, overseas as well as institutional investors, family offices, charities, banks, and trusts.

Sophie rejoins the firm from RSM Legal LLP where she was a partner leading RSM’s private client legal services team, prior to which she spent four years at a leading financial institution as in-house legal counsel supporting their global trust business. She has a wide range of experience within many aspects of private wealth, and regularly advises UK residents – as well as international, wealthy individuals, their families, and trustees on a wide range of UK legal and tax issues. Her particular focus and interests are advising internationally mobile individuals and families with a global footprint in connection with the issues they face in the context of cross border tax and estate planning.

Andrew Smith, Managing Partner at BDB Pitmans, comments:

‘The private wealth practice continues to be an important cornerstone of our business. The additions of Lorna and Sophie will further enhance their respective teams by contributing invaluable experience and expertise. Their global client base fits perfectly with our ambitious plans for growth as an outward-facing, internationally-minded, modern law firm.’
