Chambers and Partners 2016 Chancery Traditional

5 Stone Buildings is a go-to traditional chancery set with a depth and breadth of talent and experience among both its silks and its junior counsel.

Rose joined 5 Stone Building following the completion of pupillage both here and at XIV Old Buildings. She has experience of both traditional and commercial chancery contentious work; in particular claims for family provision, proprietary estoppel, removal of trustees, stolen antiques and professional negligence. She also has experience of non-contentious trust advice and drafting including in relation to Inheritance Tax and cross-border estate advice. Rose assisted in the appeal to the Supreme Court in Wood v Capita Insurance Services Ltd [2017] UKSC 24 concerning the proper construction of a contract. The judgment of Lord Hodge in Wood is the most recent assessment of the principles of contractual interpretation after Rainy Sky and Arnold v Britton. Rose also worked on major litigation involving a fraud challenge to the enforcement of a Nigerian arbitral award, including an application for specific disclosure of documents relating to the alleged fraud.

Rose graduated from Magdalen College, Oxford in 2014 with a First in Classics. While at Oxford, she was awarded the Roberts-Gawen special scholarship for her performance in Honour Moderations. Rose then went on to obtain a Distinction in the GDL and an Outstanding on the BPTC at City University, as well as being awarded the Peter Taylor scholarship, Inner Temple’s top award for the BPTC.

Rose welcomes instructions in all areas in which Chambers practises and enjoys appearing in Court.
