ARCP:  Testimonial from K.E ST6 T&O - September 2018

5 Stars  ST6 Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery (T&O) Trainee given ARCP Outcome 4 - Drafted an Appeal against the Decision of ARCP Panel on behalf of T&O Trainee – Appeal submitted to ARCP Appeal Panel – Drafted Statement for ARCP Appeal Panel Hearing – Representation at ARCP Panel Hearing - Following successful Appeal, T&O Trainee received ARCP Outcome 3  - September 2018


‘The firm is very professional and approachable, Rosanna is happy to be contacted out of working hours which allows you to talk in a confidential manner. I had a meeting with her in her office and subsequent Skype meetings and several telephone conversations. She even spoke to one of my consultants who was supportive to obtain feedback and an action plan. Rosanna even got me in touch with a couple of her previous clients for advice and support. She will give an honest opinion if she feels you have a good case and will let you know if you are unrealistic about your expectations. 

Rosanna helped me challenge my appeal for an outcome 4 in my ARCP and mentored me to develop myself and thought process to gain extreme ownership in my training and actions.  She drafted an appeal and a statement for the request for an appeal and almost 120 page document for the appeal panel, which we worked on together. I felt that she was dedicated and committed to achieving the deadlines and she walked the extra mile. I was grateful for Rosanna having to re-shuffle some of her commitments in order to attend the appeal hearing with me. Even when I got my desired outcome she was still in contact to make sure I am moving forward.  My grounds of appeal were late diagnosis of dyslexia that was not taken into account, having had surgery that was causing anxiety, bullying, cultural barrier and the deanery not following the correct procedures. I would strongly recommend the services of RT Coopers’. K.E ST6 T&O



Frequently Asked Questions on Intellectual Property

Are intellectual property assets? - August 2018
Without a doubt, intellectual property (IP) is one of the most important assets that a company will own. IP can be licensed, bought, sold, hired or mortgaged like any other form of property. One of the main sources of IP is from the results of research and development work. In order for companies and individuals to maintain the value of their IP, they must ensure a sufficient level of protection and safeguard against infringing a third party’s IP.

Testimonial: Amrita Nutrition  - Import Food Supplements - August 2018

5 Stars Amrita Nutrition 
 ‘I cannot praise Rosanna at RT Coopers highly enough. The extremely complex rules and regulations surrounding the importation of nutritional products from outside the EU were beyond the capabilities of our team. Rosanna provided the support we needed with a methodical step by step approach that made the process so much easier and less stressful for all involved. The peace of mind of knowing you are working with a team of true professionals is very reassuring indeed. I would not hesitate to recommend them'. David Brassey, Founder, Amrita Nutrition

5 Stars Games Development - Gambling - Terms and Conditions - Privacy Policy 


'I am a director of 7 Of The Best Ltd, a relatively new online sporting game about to enter its third full year of operation. Over the course of the game’s development and substantial growth in player numbers I have used RT Coopers extensively (notably working with Matthew), including seeking specialist advice on gambling legislation, all aspects of our firm’s terms and conditions and privacy policy, and most recently on our approach to dealing with the introduction of GDPR. In all these dealings I have been impressed by the depth of specialist knowledge available to me, and by the professional yet friendly and cooperative way our legal challenges and (sometimes no doubt naive) questions have been handled. I should also add that I have in an unrelated professional capacity been fortunate enough to work with a number of excellent corporate solicitors, and RT Coopers matches them in every respect. Finally, I should add that I have been struck by Matthew’s ability to quickly grasp the fundamentals of our business. This has hugely facilitated our numerous discussions and made every minute count. I’d give RT Coopers a 5-star rating'. Angus Stewart, Director, 7 Of The Best Ltd



In the case of Finanzamt Bingen-Alzey v Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co. KG (Case C‑462/16) there was a preliminary ruling by the Court of Justice in connection with the interpretation of Article 90(1) of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 (‘the VAT Directive’) to determine the amount of value added tax (‘VAT’) payable by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co. KG for the 2011 tax year. More



5 Stars Final year student accused of plagiarism - when student instructed RT Coopers the best outcome the student could have hoped for was a zero mark for the module - RT Coopers drafted a statement  in support of case -  cleared of plagiarism on the strength of the statement - July 2018


'It has been a pleasure to work with RT Coopers. In their handling of my case, I was met with compassion and true dedication to ensuring that I received the best possible outcome. Rosanna went above and beyond in her work, liaising with me frequently and ensuring that all work was completed to the highest standard. From my experience with the firm, it is evident that RT Coopers is a well run, professional organisation. Their team are friendly and helpful and provide genuine, honest advice. In all matters pertaining to higher education law, I do not believe that there is a firm better equipped to handle student cases or concerns.

I am so thankful for all the work RT Coopers have completed for me. The outcome I received as a consequence of their hard work is more than I could have hoped for. As the head of the firm, Dr Rosanna Cooper is an outstanding solicitor. Her dedication, intellect and compassion are second to none. Throughout her dealings with my case, I was assured, knowing that she was fully devoted to my cause. Given that students invest both emotionally and financially in their education, matters pertaining to higher education law can deem daunting at first. However, with RT Coopers, students can rest assured that their future is in safe hands. After what has been a stressful few months, I am now confident in the knowledge that my future is bright, and that I am fully vindicated with the resolution of my case'.  Zoey



5 Stars Complaint to the OIA as student dissatisfied with Degree Classification  - Assisted with Complaint - The OIA has made recommendations to the University to reconsider Degree Classification - June 2018


I contacted Rosanna Cooper to help me with my son's case against his university on his degree classification to the OIA. From the first telephone conversation Rosanna was very helpful and honest about the nature of the case.


She was thorough, fair and transparent in providing assistance during the application process to the OIA. She worked over the weekend at short notice to meet the deadline. The OIA realised that important aspects discovered by Rosanna, about my son’s case were ignored during the University’s appeal process. I cannot thank her enough for her expertise and professionalism which ensured a highly satisfactory decision by the OIA in my son’s favour. The OIA has made recommendations to the university to reconsider his degree classification. More

At such short notice, I was looking for a lawyer to help me with my settlement agreement.

RT Coopers had a clear understanding of the situation I was facing and the strategy to take it forward to a desired conclusion. I am extremely happy with the service, I received from RT Coopers. I particularly valued the prompt answers I received to all of my queries. A very high professional standard and work experience to deal in such situation, has really helped me in taking the right decision.

5 Stars  Level 3 Fitness to Study Allegation -  Student was facing Withdrawal from studies at University - We prepared Statement for Student to present to Fitness to Study Panel- Student successful and allowed to complete studies


'There is no limit to my gratitude to Dr Rosanna Cooper as she is an amazing human being and such a brilliant lawyer. I thank God that I met her. She helped me through all the way up till the end of my Panel hearing. She made absolutely sure that her job was done effectively. When I started to read my statement, which she prepared, I was so satisfied with the effort that Dr Rosanna had put into my work. You could see how amazingly she had done the job. It felt like Dr Rosanna had been there and felt all the tiny bits of my story and lived through it with me, my life. Finally she could put it all into to my statement and make it come alive. More



ARCP:  Testimonial from Dr WM - February 2018



5 Stars GP ST2 given ARCP Outcome 4 - Drafted an Appeal against the Decision of ARCP Panel on behalf of Trainee GP – Appeal submitted to ARCP Appeal Panel - Following successful Appeal, Trainee GP received ARCP Outcome 3  



'Dr Rosanna Cooper has been a fantastic guide and support through the cruelling Appeal process. I had gone through the ARCP Appeal and Review stages myself with advice from the BMA. I only involved Rosanna when it came to the preparation for the Independent Appeal.   I regret not involving her earlier.  Rosanna took my raw Appeal and in the course of a mammoth telephone and Skype conversation guided me through many alterations and improvements that would be necessary. Her knowledge in this area is superior to any other advisor I tried.  After I had incorporated all her suggestions the Appeal documentation made a huge leap in its professionalism. She then kindly worked on it solidly over a full weekend to meet the deadline.  What she was able to suggest and craft, from my draft, made the conclusions and summary rock solid. She displayed a level of care and interest in my case that was unsurpassed. I wholeheartedly recommend her and the firm, 5 stars'.   Dr W.M


Legal Update: Higher Education – Disclosure of Spent Convictions - The case of HA v University of Wolverhampton [2018] EWHC 144 (Admin) was heard on 12 February 2018 - February 2018



When the claimant was 14 years of age, the claimant committed robbery and assault. At 15 years of age, the claimant was convicted of robbery and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The University of Wolverhampton (the “defendant”) excluded the claimant from the Master of Pharmacy course (“MPharm”) because the claimant had such convictions. The claimant sought judicial review. The application for judicial review was allowed.




The question was whether the defendant had the right to impose an obligation on the claimant (i) to disclose the claimants spent convictions; and (ii) to obtain an enhanced criminal record certificate (“ECRC”). More
