Work Department

Tax, Trust and Estates


Senior Associate Solicitor 
Rose advises individuals and families of high net worth, sometimes with assets outside the UK, on all aspects of UK estate planning. This includes inheritance tax planning, preparing Wills, creating trusts, acting as trustee and advising trustees on the administration of their trusts.


During her previous career in film, Rose constantly found herself drawn to technical documentation issues and would immerse herself in the details of the various agreements and negotiations which were required and decided to change career and started legal training.

Rose was also fortunate to get exposure to the law from a very young age and used to help out at her mother’s law practice whenever she could throughout her teens and twenties.
