2016 was a big one for Ros Bever. She represented both Alison Sharland and Varsha Gohil at the Supreme Court in landmark cases that redefined the law and its reach into disclosure of assets. Bever’s client Gohil made it clear that she saw no winners in divorce but praised Bever ‘and the whole team at Irwin Mitchell, who have believed in me and my case. At the 11th hour they gave up their time to put in the tremendous amount of hard work to bring my case to this court.’ The Manchester-based Bever is keen to point out that she acts for men as well as women. Tellingly, her male clients agree: ‘She gave me the best advice ever — all delivered in a calm and pragmatic way,’ says one.
