Profile

Ros specialises in high value fraud and financial services litigation, and is co-head of our market leading fraud and asset recovery team. She has extensive experience of obtaining and defending injunctions, including freezing orders. Both The Legal 500 and Chambers UK list her as a 'Leading Individual', with The Legal 500 2020 describing her as "a standout fraud litigator with superb international experience". Most of Ros' cases are international and she has particular expertise in Russia/CIS/CEE disputes.

She has acted on a number of the largest claims heard by the English courts in recent years. Clients praise her leadership skills and commitment, with Chambers UK describing her as "impressive, strategic, and very well respected" and The Legal 500 2020 describing her as “a tenacious litigator without fear of standing up to oligarchs or governments”.

Ros has particular expertise in complex fraud and asset recovery litigation. She has obtained and defended many freezing orders, as well as search and seizure orders, third party disclosure orders and other injunctions.

She has broad experience of financial services litigation and many of her cases involve complex fraud claims arising out of banking and other international corporate insolvencies.

Ros' clients include companies, directors, governments, insolvency practitioners, and high net worth individuals. Most of her cases are international, and she has particular expertise in cases originating from Russia, CIS and other emerging markets. Ros has extensive experience of disputes involving offshore structures and parallel litigation in jurisdictions such as BVI, Cyprus, Cayman, Mauritius and the Isle of Man. She often works on cases involving parallel civil and criminal proceedings, both domestically and internationally.

She is a solicitor-advocate with full rights of audience before the English High Court. Ros’ expertise is highly regarded internationally, and she has been asked to speak on fraud related topics at events organised by the United Nations, the Commonwealth Secretariat, and a number of governments.

"Ros is a leading light of asset tracing in London. She's a doyenne of fraud generally. It's fair to say she's one of the most well-known names in the market. She's hard as nails, a very good lawyer and a strategist." - Chambers UK 2021
