Simon Rose

Managing Director

Simon was a founding partner and is now the managing director of Morgan Rose Solicitors.

He trained and then worked as a commercial litigator in the City. Over the course of his career he has acted in headline cases of libel, solicitor negligence and corporate insolvency and he continues to maintain an active role with a current general commercial litigation portfolio, overseeing actions in matters such as liquidators acting against administrative receivers, bringing and defending freezing injunctions and high value civil and commercial litigation.

Simon regularly advises a broad range of corporate and private clients involved in all manner of civil disputes ranging from tax inquiries and appeals, claims for breach of contract; breach of directors’ duties; actions against defaulting trustees; civil and commercial fraud; asset and debt recovery; shareholder disputes and contentious insolvency matters.

In addition, between 2000-2010, Simon was the Senior Partner of the Criminal Litigation department within the firm and was responsible for a number of high profile and legal precedent setting cases before the Court of Appeal and more recently, in the Supreme Court. Matters he dealt with during this period included acting for defendants in criminal investigations and prosecutions for commercial fraud, Missing Trader Intra Community (MTIC) fraud, pension fraud, breach of US and EU sanctions as well as other complex high value criminal trials and asset confiscations.

Simon maintains his multi-disciplinary expertise as he has found it proves invaluable to clients whose disputes cross the boundaries between civil and criminal law.

Simon combines significant and proven expertise in both criminal and commercial litigation and has delivered outstanding results for clients on cases which initially may have had little or no prospects of success.
