Peer review:

I am a barrister who is regularly instructed by Ros and work with her closely as her cases progress through court. Ros is a formidable lawyer; she has a mastery of the relevant legal principles (which is itself impressive in a field where the principles change regularly), and applies them to give practical, commercial, informed and realistic advice from the very first client meeting. She has real legal "vision", predicting with great accuracy how she can use the law to achieve her client's preferred outcome. And whilst she will leave no stone unturned in her search for a satisfactory compromise, she will fight fearlessly if that is the only option. If I were a client, I would definitely want her on my side!

Private client review:

Ros has been working with me for 8 years and has been an examplar of skill, determination, honesty and professionalism. She led my complex divorce case from the High Court through to the Supreme Court, in circumstances where I felt the Judiciary was against me and my case. Ros provided honest and practical advice at all stages and as a result of her guidance, we reached a satisfactory outcome at the Supreme Court, changing case law in the process. Throughout, Ros has been available to me 24/7 to advise and guide me through complex matters and processes. She has been brilliant. I don’t know what I would have done without her.

Private client review:

I approached Ros to act for me during my ongoing marital dispute. It was a very stressful time for me and she was able to reassure me and always succeeded in putting me at ease when I felt anxious. Ros is very kind and professional in her approach to her clients. Her knowledge in family law is impressive and she and her team were successful in getting me a result after 7 years of battling to bring an end to divorce issues. I felt I could talk to her openly and she always went the extra mile to make sure I understood the proceedings and next steps during my case. She thoroughly deserves every success that comes her way and I am very happy and grateful to have had her represent me during a very upsetting and stressful period.

I have worked with Ros and her team on many occasions and could not recommend her strongly enough. Her advice and judgment is sound and is given in a down to earth and reassuring manner. Her accolades are remarkable, and any client involved in family law proceedings is in a very safe pair of hands indeed.

Peer review:

I’m immensely grateful that Ros agreed to take on my case when other firms had refused. Many hurdles have been thrown our way but Ros was never deterred, she’s often gone beyond the call of duty and continued to fight on when other firms would have walked away. Certain parts of my case are new in case law, for example, my case is the first to consider the discovery of non-disclosure of assets after the death of one of the parties. Ros is not afraid to take on groundbreaking cases and has a brilliance when looking at matters and often see’s what others don’t. She has supported me through every step of my case and I have always found her advice to be clear, calm and sound.

The judgement in Roocroft and Ball - assets worth millions of pounds hidden and only discovered years after ex-partners death

The judgement in Roocroft and Ball is handed down exactly a year after Irwin Mitchell was also successful in the Supreme Court when the law firm represented two wives - Varsha Gohil and Alison Sharland, who challenged their divorce settlements after their husbands were found to have misled them significantly regarding their wealth.

This latest landmark case led by Ros Bever is the first in legal history to consider the discovery of non-disclosure of assets after the death of one of the parties.

Helen Roocroft discovered that her civil partner, who died intestate in 2013, and appeared in The Sunday Times Rich List, seemed to have hidden assets worth millions of pounds in business assets during the dissolution of their relationship, won the legal battle at the Court of Appeal to set aside an original “unfair” settlement.
