An Interview with Rooks Rider


James John, Partner - Real Estate & Wealth Planning

What does Rooks Rider Solicitors do?

Rooks Rider Solicitors LLP, established in 1761, is a boutique legal firm located in the UK. Specializing in a range of services including wealth planning, real estate,  leasehold enfranchisement, property litigation, immigration and corporate law, we serve both local and international clients. Our firm values enduring client relationships, offering a personalized, professional service to navigate life's challenges and secure the future. With a strong track record, we blend local expertise with a global outlook to meet our clients' legal needs effectively.


How can you assist PCD Club members?

As part of the PCD Club, Rooks Rider Solicitors is well-equipped to support fellow members in their professional pursuits. Our team of experienced solicitors is available to provide legal guidance and assistance in areas that are relevant to PCD Club members, such as estate and tax planning, property and corporate transactions, immigration, and more. We are particularly well placed to provide advice to overseas structures set up to protect family’s succession planning. We understand the importance of legal support for individuals and organisations looking to make a meaningful impact, and we are here to offer our expertise to assist PCD Club members in achieving their goals.


Why did you contribute to the GOSH campaign?

Our support for the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) campaign reflects our commitment to corporate social responsibility as an active member of the PCD Club. GOSH is a respected institution dedicated to caring for children with complex medical conditions, and we believe in supporting their critical work. Our contribution is aimed at assisting GOSH with the provision of essential medical services, advancing research, and improving the well-being of children and their families during challenging times. We are honoured to be associated with such a worthy cause.


What should the PCD Club team consider for future charity sponsorship?

There is a lot to be said for picking a great cause that you are committed to and to stick with it; if GOSH resonates with you, keep with it. Organisations such as GOSH need constant support. Perhaps consider different events, such as a charity walk or endurance challenges - sorry David 😊 – but the London to Brighton Cycle Ride is such an iconic event and if you repeat the exploit PCD members may wish to join you? 


"At Rooks Rider Solicitors, we believe in the importance of giving back to the community. Our support for PCD Club members and the Great Ormond Street Hospital campaign exemplifies our commitment to making a positive impact. JM Barrie, the man who created Peter Pan, drew inspiration from the children at GOSH, and his legacy continues to shine through the hospital's remarkable work. However, despite JM Barrie's unprecedented generosity, GOSH still needs much support and funding. On a personal note, I can attest to the impact, knowing two children who wouldn’t be with us today if it wasn’t for GOSH. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the PCD Club and contributing to future initiatives." ~ James John, Partner, Rooks Rider Solicitors.
