Following qualification as a solicitor, Isla Smith joined Norton Rose where she worked for 24 years (including 19 years as a partner), rising to the position of Global Head of Tax.

He left Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein in 2006 and enrolled on a Masters programme at London University

Christopher Clarke, Chairman of Rensburg Sheppards commented: "I am delighted to welcome both Isla and Robert to the Board. They bring with them significant and varied experience which I am confident will assist us in taking the group forward.
