Practice Areas

Rebecca is Head of the Family department and her work covers all aspects of private family law. She has specialist experience in matrimonial finance often with international elements and children matters (Schedule 1 and relocation cases, as well as day to day children cases dealing with living arrangements and schooling issues).

Rebecca is regularly instructed in City based divorces (receiving referrals from corporate law firms, leading investment banks and broking houses) and also represents wealthy London mothers, entrepreneurs and unmarried parents.

Rebecca heads a strong team delivering a high-level service with astute financial acumen and exceptional emotional support to help clients through the difficult process of divorce/separation.

Rebecca is collaborative in her approach but a skilful litigator when necessary. Rebecca tends to settle many of her cases outside of court to protect client privacy and confidentiality. She increasingly uses the forums of private FDRs and Arbitration.
