Profile

Ros Bever

Description

Spear's Review

Ever since the landmark Supreme Court decision of Sharland and Gohil, the 2015 case which saw wives winning against dishonest husbands, enquiries have ‘streamed in’ for Ros Bever, ‘many from clients of rival law firms seeking second opinions’. ‘I am committed to achieving justice for my clients and I am a fighter when I need to be,’ she says.

The head of Irwin Mitchell’s national family department is one for creative solutions. She believes the efficiency of arbitration can sometimes trump the fees, adding that clients have the advantage of choosing from a healthy crop of experienced FDR judges who can ‘align objective with reality’. It’s useful to have Bever by your side, she says, as ‘navigating the current system can be tricky’.

Adviser Profile

Ros Bever is Director of Legal Services-Family, which has flourished as one of the largest and best regarded family teams in the country under Ros' leadership.

Ros has a serious reputation in the family law sector for her ground-breaking cases, including two Supreme Court matters, Sharland and Gohil, as well as A v A. Ros works with the highest tier of clients including HNWs, UHNW and celebrities.

Her particular specialism is in complex, high-value cases, often involving trust assets and international issues. She enjoys pre and post-nuptial agreement work and Schedule I cases.

Ros attracts work nationally and internationally, litigates against Magic Circle firms and is perceived to be a go-to lawyer outside of London.
