Becky is a senior associate in the fraud and asset recovery team in London. She acts on high-value commercial disputes with a particular focus on complex cross-border fraud claims. Much of Becky's work involves applications for interim relief, and she has advised clients on freezing injunctions, search and delivery-up orders, gagging orders, disclosure orders and anti-suit injunctions.
Becky acts for both claimants and defendants: her clients range from banks and large corporates to individuals. She has particular experience of disputes in the energy and banking and finance sectors.
She often works alongside local counsel and manages English court proceedings alongside parallel proceedings in other jurisdictions. Becky has previously worked on cases involving the BVI, Hong Kong, the UAE, the Channel Islands, Switzerland, Japan and several South-East Asian jurisdictions.
Alongside her fraud and asset recovery work, Becky has advised on professional negligence claims (claimant and defendant side), contractual disputes, financial mis-selling claims and regulatory investigations.
Becky studied English Literature at Oxford University before training as a lawyer. She spent nearly five years working at a "Magic Circle" law firm in London (including a six-month secondment to a global investment bank) before joining Stephenson Harwood.
