Rose Lagram-Taylor
Called to the Bar 2016

Rose joined Chambers after completing her pupillage in October 2017. During her pupillage, Rose was exposed to all of Chambers’ principal areas of practice, including insolvency and restructuring (both domestic and cross-border), banking and finance, insurance, company, general commercial and offshore work, gaining extensive experience in both drafting and advisory work. Notable cases she assisted on as a pupil include the various Waterfall applications both in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, as well as the ongoing Robert Tchenguiz & Ors v Grant Thornton UK LLP & Ors on which she has recently been instructed to assist.

Prior to joining, 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 before obtaining a Master of Studies in Medieval History from Oxford University.
