A family lawyer from Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth is the only woman in Manchester to be named on a list of the top 50 most powerful women in the legal and financial sectors.
Ros Bever who is national head of family law at Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth has been named on Citywealth’s 2018/18 Powerwomen Top 50 list.
Ros is one of four lawyers named outside of London, and is the only woman from Manchester to make the list. The rankings, which are decided by Citywealth’s editorial team, includes women from the legal and financial sectors.
Ros’ place in the rankings is justly deserved thanks to her outstanding national and international reputation in the legal world following the success of Ros’ two Supreme Court cases, Sharland and Gohil. Ros’ position as a market-leader for innovative family law has been secured with a host of accolades including being previously listed in The Lawyer’s Top 100 rankings, where she was the only divorce lawyer to be listed outside of London.
Ros is also nominated for Citywealth’s ‘Inspirational Woman of the Year’ award at Citywealth’s 2018 Powerwomen Awards, which will take place next month.
Ros, who has over 18 years’ experience in family and divorce law, said: “It’s fantastic to have been named on Citywealth’s Powerwomen list and I’m absolutely thrilled to have received a place and be recognised for the excellent work our team is doing on behalf of our clients.
“I was born and raised in Manchester, so being from here is a big part of my identity both personally and professionally. I’m proud to be flying the flag for family law outside of the capital.
“We are working on ground-breaking landmark family and divorce cases which are setting precedents for the future. Many of these are for clients with international assets who come to us for our experience and expertise, and recognise that you don’t have to be in London to get the best advice.
“Though I love working with my clients in London, the Powerwomen list shows that you don’t have to go to the capital to find great lawyers who are working on some of the very best and cutting-edge cases.”
