Rose Phelps


Rose qualified in 1979 and since then has specialised in probate and succession, inheritance tax, and UK private trusts. She also deals with Court of Protection applications and Lasting Powers of Attorney. She has a particular interest in cross-border probate and succession issues, that is to say estates where not all the assets are located in the UK, or where the deceased lived abroad or made their will under the law of another jurisdiction but had assets in the UK to be administered. She is often consulted on points of English law by professional advisers in other jurisdictions, particularly in Israel and France, where her linguistic skills are put to good use. 

She has been a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners since its inception and was at one time in charge of the training of legal volunteers at Terrence Higgins Trust.  Over the years she has also run seminars for employee groups and for various charities, as well as in-house training for colleagues and junior staff.

Rose formally joined Bross Bennett as a consultant in early 2018, having worked with the firm on various cases over a long period before that.  She offers a mature and pragmatic approach to clients who have had a bereavement or when physical health or mental capacity is impaired, but also has many years of practical and technical experience in dealing with HMRC Inheritance Tax section on chargeable estates and in acting for executors or beneficiaries of large or complex estates.
