5 Nov 2020
Hickman & Rose is pleased to have been recognised as a leading UK law firm by the Times newspaper, as well as the country’s most prestigious legal directories. The Times’ judges commended the firm for its work in financial crime, fraud and regulatory law as well as in human rights law.
Recognition in the Times list comes alongside widespread praise in the recently published editions of legal directories Chambers and Partners and Legal 500. Our Serious and General Crime team was ranked Band One / Tier One in both Chambers and Legal 500, with department head Jenny Wiltshire again recognised as Band One / Tier One. Founding partner Ben Rose is described as a ‘leading individual’ in Legal 500 with partners Aileen Colhoun and Peter Csemiczky both recommended by Chambers in this area.
The Business Crime team’s recent stellar run has been acknowledged by both guides, with Ross Dixon recognised by Chambers in Band One in the Financial Crime: Individuals category and by Legal 500 as a ‘leading individual’ working in White Collar criminal law. Ben Rose is again recognised as a leading individual by Legal 500 and both Ben and fellow partner Andrew Katzen are recommended by Chambers.
The firm’s expertise in Proceeds of Crime work has been acknowledged by Chambers who rank the firm highly for this work. Both Andrew Katzen and Ross Dixon are recognised in this area. The firm is also ranked by Legal 500 in both the Professional Discipline and Financial Services: Contentious categories: recognition of continued growth and recent success in these areas.
Hickman & Rose’s excellent civil litigation work is acknowledged by both directories, with Chambers again ranking the firm as Band One in Police Law and Band Two for both ‘Civil Liberties and Human Rights’ and ‘Admin and Public Law’. Legal 500 also ranks us highly for Civil Liberties and Admin and Public law work.
Civil department head Daniel Machover is again recognised by Chambers in Band One for Police Law as well being recommended for Civil Liberties and Human Rights. Legal 500 calls Daniel a ‘leading individual’ in Civil Liberties. Stefano Ruis’ ground-breaking work in Police Law sees him named by Chambers as a ‘star individual’ in that category and ranked in Admin and Public law. Kate Maynard is highly ranked across all three of the firm’s civil specialisms.
Helen Stone is picked out as a ‘Star Associate’ in Police Law by Chambers & Partners and a ‘Rising Star’ in Administrative and Public Law by Legal 500. Legal 500 also recommends Ellie Cornish for her work in civil liberties.
