Rebecca is a Senior Associate in our Dispute Resolution Team. After joining Walker Morris in 2011, Rebecca first worked for our Construction and Engineering Group before joining our CDR Team.
Rebecca’s experience includes advising on high value and complex litigation, as well as significant trial and mediation experience in multi-party litigation. She also specialises in issues concerning reputation management, social media and defamation. Her clients span a variety of industries and include High Net Worth individuals.
Rebecca has undertaken several in-house secondments with clients, including working for a major FTSE 250 company specialising in renewable energy and a global contract research organisation group specialising in drug development. This frontline experience has given Rebecca an enormous amount of commercial insight which is invaluable when it comes to seeking the best outcomes for her clients.
She enjoys the variety of work and clients noting that this “keeps me on my toes and keeps things interesting”. Rebecca also enjoys building a rapport with clients right from the start of an instruction and finds this helps her to quickly get to the bottom of a client’s business objectives so that she can tailor her advice to their unique needs.
When asked to describe her approach to client work, Rebecca says, “I’m hardworking and very committed to getting the right outcome for my clients. I’ll always guard my clients’ best interests and I take a proactive approach to understanding their commercial drivers”.
Managing client expectations in terms of cost and risk can be challenging, but Rebecca points out that by being upfront at the outset, she can help clients to fully consider their options at each stage and she will provide best- and worst-case scenarios to make sure her clients are really on board. “It’s rare that anybody really wants to litigate, so my role is to make the process as painless as possible and to achieve the best outcome for my clients as quickly as circumstances will allow”.
Rebecca is a member of the Walker Morris FUND industry group, building relationships with clients in the Fund Group, including PE houses, investors, alternative lenders, banks and other financial institutions and organisations. She regularly provides webinars and training for clients and is a mentor to junior lawyers at Walker Morris.
