Rebecca is developing a broad commercial practice, with a particular emphasis on insurance and reinsurance, shipping, conflicts of laws, civil fraud, and general commercial disputes. She joined 7KBW in September 2019 following the successful completion of her pupillage and accepts instructions in all areas of Chambers’ work.
Since accepting tenancy, Rebecca has been instructed in a broad range of matters both led and unled. Recent led work includes acting for the successful defendants in a multi-million-pound contractors’ all risks insurance arbitration. Her work as sole counsel includes a dispute concerning alleged breaches of various freight forwarding contracts; a claim under the Inter Club Agreement; and an application for Norwich Pharmacal relief.
