Who we are
Camilla Rose consults primarily in Bergvliet.
She graduated with a postgraduate law degree with distinction at the University of Cape Town in 2001. Having interned at the Legal Resources Centre during her studies, she undertook her practical vocational training (then articles of clerkship) at the vibrant University of the Witwatersrand Law Clinic, where she focused on providing access to justice for the most vulnerable and marginalised members of society.
Camilla was thereafter an attorney, partner and co-owner of Chennells Albertyn Attorneys for a number of years, where she practised private law while continuing to pursue social justice, especially in the areas of land tenure for farmworkers and land claims by the dispossessed.
In 2012, inspired by a drive to practise law differently, Camilla established Rose Attorneys. Her signature style is empathetic and warm, engaging clients holistically, while providing uncompromisingly excellent legal services.
Camilla is a trained conflict coach and mediator.
Camilla has a special interest in commercial work, especially contracts, wills and estates.
In her spare time, she is an avid student of mindfulness, Non-Violent Communication (NVC) and psychology.
Colette Ashton consults primarily in Noordhoek.
She graduated with a postgraduate LLB from the University of Cape Town in 2018 and joined Rose Attorneys in January 2019.
She won UCT’s Bowman Gilfillan prize for tax law and holds a certificate from Leiden University in the Netherlands for International Tax Law. She is currently pursuing a part time Masters degree at the International Anti Corruption Academy in Vienna.
Colette is an accredited commercial mediator and has trained in Non Violent Communication (NVC).
Colette completed her BA Hons in Political Philosophy with distinction at UCT in 1997 and then focused on raising her children while working part time for various civil society organisations.
In her spare time Colette braves the cold waters of the Atlantic ocean as a long distance open water swimmer.
