Rebecca joined 7KBW in September 2019 following the successful completion of her pupillage. She is building a practice across Chambers’ core practice areas, with an emphasis on insurance and reinsurance, shipping, conflicts of laws, and general commercial disputes.
As a pupil, Rebecca assisted her supervisors in a broad range of matters, including: a trial in the Circuit Commercial Court concerning the construction of a legal expenses insurance policy; a shipbuilding arbitration under the LMAA rules; a marine insurance claim arising out of the misappropriation of cargo exported to West Africa; and a large civil fraud claim. She gained experience of disputes involving jurisdictional and choice of law issues, in which she has developed a strong interest.
Since accepting an offer of tenancy, Rebecca has been instructed in a variety of matters both led and unled. She recently acted as junior in a multi-million-pound insurance arbitration. She has also completed a secondment in the shipping department of a major solicitors’ firm.
