Rosanna Foskett is praised by peers as “unflappable” and “a real team player”.
Rosanna Foskett is a member of Maitland Chambers, a leading set of commercial and Chancery barristers’ chambers in London. She has practised from these chambers since joining as a pupil in October 2008 and is recommended in Chambers UK and The Legal 500.
Rosanna’s practice covers the full range of commercial and Chancery litigation, arbitration and advisory work. The focus of her work is general commercial litigation, banking and finance cases, commercial fraud and asset tracing, company and partnership matters, corporate insolvency and trusts work.
Her recent work highlights include acting in: the Lehman Brothers Waterfall litigation (from first instance to the Supreme Court) arising out of the Lehman collapse in the US and England in 2008; several significant shareholder disputes in litigation and arbitration (including in relation to a billion -pound English company and a Central American bank); and a long-running asset-tracing claim arising out of the bankruptcy of a Russian businessman.
Many of Rosanna’s cases have an international element and she is well used to dealing with jurisdiction and conflicts of laws issues, together with the full range of interim applications which tend to form part of substantial commercial disputes, both in litigation and arbitration.
Rosanna appears in the English Courts (up to the Supreme Court) and international and domestic arbitrations under a variety of rules. She is regularly instructed in “offshore” disputes as part of a team of lawyers from different jurisdictions.
Rosanna was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge University (MA, first class; MPhil); and City University, London (postgraduate diploma in law, distinction).
