The 2017 edition of Chambers and Partners says of Rebecca: “she has a reputation for providing sound, user-friendly advice”. She is “the complete package – she has a very good head on her, excellent judgement when it comes to running cases, and a very persuasive manner when dealing with the courts.”

Rebecca has a wide ranging commercial practice. Current and recent cases include: accountants’  liability claims, especially audit negligence (including Manchester Building Society v. Grant Thornton (2018) and Cattles v. PwC, which settled at the start of the trial in October 2015); ICC arbitrations in Paris acting for a Middle Eastern government concerning oil and gas concession agreements (hearings in each of  2011-2017); LCIA arbitrations in London concerning commodities / metal smelting (2017), political risk insurance / natural gas (2016), commercial fraud (2016) and long term supply contract / financing agreements (2015); injunction proceedings in the Commercial Court and Chancery Division concerning bond sales (2017) and acting for private equity funds (2015 and 2016); LMAA arbitrations; and the long-running Teal v. Berkley, a reinsurance case which went to the Supreme Court in 2013 and came back before the Court of Appeal on another issue in 2016.

Rebecca is listed as a leading silk in the fields of commercial dispute resolution, insurance, international arbitration and professional negligence in the 2018 Chambers & Partners Directory and commercial litigation, insurance and professional negligence in the 2017 Legal 500 Directory.
