About us

Hickman and Rose is a firm committed to justice and the rule of law. We are renowned for the work we do in holding governments and their police forces to account. Our service to individuals and businesses is both national and international.

The firm was established in 1991 by Ben Rose and Jane Hickman (who recently retired from the partnership and plays the role of consultant/coach). It is listed in Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession and in Legal 500 for its criminal, human rights and civil liberties work. In 2009 the firm was commended in the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Report for its work in the crime and universal justice categories.

We are the leading firm nationally on international criminal jurisdiction. We have special expertise in police law, surveillance tactics, and data protection.
We employ an array of exceptionally bright and talented lawyers. Our expertise and training crosses department boundaries so that our civil lawyers are up to date with criminal law, and our criminal lawyers “think outside the box”.
