Rosamond specialises in tax and estate planning advice for individual private clients, families and trustees, onshore and offshore.  She helps families to plan, advising on estate and capital taxes, inheritance matters, wills, trusts and other financial structures.  Mental capacity is critical to estate planning matters, and Rosamond advises on Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications.  Difficulties can arise from maladministration of probates or breaches of trust, fiduciary or investment obligations, or when the laws of various jurisdictions internationally conflict.  Rosamond can advise beneficiaries in these circumstances and is also experienced at defending executors and trustees who are subject to complaints from aggrieved beneficiaries.

Rosamond is a member of the Law Society Private Client Section. She is also an ordained priest.

The Legal 500 UK law directory recommends the "intelligent, practical and wise" Rosamond McDowell and comments that "she is noted for her legal acumen, is multilingual and has a great client manner".  Chambers & Partners UK and Global directories also comment that "the incredibly professional Rosamond McDowell splits her time between contentious and non-contentious private client matters as well as cross-border trusts issues and is hard working, thorough, a good trust lawyer and empathetic”.  Sources note that "she goes the extra mile, is very sensible and doesn't try to inflame situations". Rosamond has been included in the Citywealth Leaders List for many years and has been endorsed by Who's Who Legal: Private Client.
