Overview

Rebecca is a second six pupil at 3PB and is able to accept instructions.

Rebecca has gained experience working on a range of cases including commercial, chancery, insolvency, defamation, property and education litigation.  She is well suited to act and advise in these areas at a junior level and is already receiving instructions in her own name from solicitors who have been impressed with her work.

Rebecca enjoys technical disputes and is noted for her diligence and attention to detail. Rebecca has regularly appeared in court during her second six. Recent examples of cases she has been involved with include:

  • Successfully defending an application to set aside a costs order in a breach of contract dispute
  • Dealing with the impact a bankruptcy petition had on proceedings under Section 285 of the Insolvency Act 1986
  • Successfully defending an application to suspend and/or set aside a possession order in a landlord and tenant context and
  • A number of personal insolvency, credit hire and enforcement matters.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Rebecca spent eight months at Littleton Chambers assisting a barrister in the day to day running of her practice. She followed many cases from their inception to their conclusion and gained exposure to a range of Courts including the Employment Tribunal, the First-Tier Tax Tribunal and the High Court. Rebecca was relied on to produce accurate notes of judgments and organise court documents. Rebecca also worked as a paralegal in an international law firm on a multi-faceted reinsurance matter where she developed an interest in commercial disputes.

Rebecca was also a Legal Editor at FromCounsel, a publishing company that provides an online resource for company lawyers and also worked as a County Court Advocate prior to taking up her pupillage with 3PB.
