Ben Rose oversees Hickman & Rose’s High Net Worth practice and is the primary port of call for HNW clients facing what many consider to be the biggest crisis of their lives.
A highly experienced criminal defence lawyer with detailed knowledge of reputational matters and an excellent ‘bedside manner’ with clients, Ben calmly guides even the most nervous client through their legal concerns.
Among Ben’s HNW clients are celebrities and high profile individuals who come to him for his ability to deal with the most sensational cases with the utmost discretion. While most of Ben’s work in this area is confidential, publicly acknowledged clients include the artist David Hockney, businessman Hans Rausing and Hollywood cinematographer Matthew Libatique.
Highly organised and completely strategic, Ben draws on a vast network of contacts – both domestic and abroad – to facilitate his client’s legal needs. He is increasingly called upon to play an overseeing role ‘case managing’ complex legal matters that span various jurisdictions.
In recent years Ben has taken on a growing number of HNW clients requiring advice in relation to money laundering and POCA. He comments frequently in the media on developments in this field, particularly regarding Unexplained Wealth Orders.
