About this blog

This blog is for information purposes and should not be relied upon as legal advice because it does not consider or take into account your own personal circumstances. If in doubt, seek legal advice.


Professor David Rosen is a lawyer and an academic. He is a strategic legal advisor to Help4Lips. He is consulted on a pro bono basis entirely voluntarily by Help4Lips, to assist with information and contents presented on our website.

Professor Rosen does not hold this position to give free legal advice or to advise litigants in person on personal cases, although he does run a Pro Bono centre at Brunel University during the second academic terms from around January to March each year. He also regularly lectures at Brunel as an Honorary Professor of Law, on a variety of topics including counter fraud and counter corruption, advocacy, mooting, and practical legal skills. Professor Rosen is a partner and head of litigation at Darlingtons Solicitors LLP where he has held that position for over a decade.

He is a Solicitor-Advocate with higher rights of audience in both criminal and civil courts regularly appearing in the Chancery Division and the Queen’s Bench Division of the High Court of Justice, the Family Division, the Probate Division, and Crown Courts in criminal matters. Professor Rosen has a wealth of high profile cases, and draws his experience from over 17 years of dealing with contentious cases, seemingly unhelpful court staff and Judges, together with bitter and twisted people which include clients, former clients, litigants in person, and solicitors.

He was McKenzie friend to Lady Heather Mills McCartney during her widely publicised divorce proceedings, and thereafter acted for her as solicitor-advocate in the Court of Appeal.

Professor Rosen has memberships with the Society for Legal Scholars, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Royal United Services Institute, Pyramus and Thisbe Club, London Solicitors’ Litigation Association, Proceeds of Crime Lawyers’ Association, and the Fraud Advisory Panel amongst others.
