Rose Lagram-Taylor Called to the Bar 2016

Rose joined Chambers after completing her pupillage in October 2017, and has developed a broad practice across a range of Chambers’ areas of expertise, including insolvency and restructuring (both domestic and cross-border), banking and finance, insurance, company, general commercial, and offshore work.

She regularly appears in the High Court and the County Court, often making applications under the Insolvency Act 1986 and the Companies Act 2006, and also representing petitioners, debtors and supporting creditors in the Companies Court Winding Up List. Rose also works with more senior members of Chambers on larger cases, and has recently assisted Daniel Bayfield QC on two separate matters.

She also undertakes drafting and advisory work in all Chambers’ core areas. Her most recent work includes drafting a defence and mediation statement on a £4.7million claim relating to an alleged unlawful payment of a dividend, drafting witness statements of a Part 8 claim for directions in a liquidation, and providing written advice on a company’s retention of title clause.

During her pupillage, Rose was exposed to several of the most notable cases members of South Square have been instructed on including the various Waterfall applications both in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, the Ocean Rig restructuring, and Robert Tchenguiz & Ors v Grant Thornton UK LLP & Ors  on which she was also instructed to assist in her own right.

Prior to joining Chambers, Rose gained valuable experience working in the General Counsels’ Office at American Express and at Hausfeld law firm, as well as through offering pro bono assistance at Woolwich County Court to tenants during possession hearings with Greenwich Housing Rights.

Rose graduated from King’s College London with a first-class honours degree in History where she also spent 6 months at Auckland University in New Zealand, before obtaining a Master of Studies in Medieval History from Oxford University, and then attaining her GDL and BPTC qualifications. She is a member of the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, and is a recipient of their most prestigious award, the Queen Mother Scholarship.
