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: auditors’ negligence claims (including 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 2011-2016); injunction proceedings in the Commercial Court and Chancery Division, acting for private equity funds (2015 and 2016); a political risk insurance arbitration in London concerning natural gas (2016); an LCIA arbitration in London concerning a commercial fraud (2016); an LCIA arbitration in London concerning security agreements and a long term supply contract (2015); and the long-running Teal v. Berkley, a reinsurance case which went to the Supreme Court in 2013 and is 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 and professional negligence in the 2017 Chambers & Partners Directory and the 2016 Legal 500 Directory.
Rebecca is a supporting member of the LMAA and a member of the LCIA and is willing to accept appointments as arbitrator.
