Rebekah is a Solicitor-Advocate (Higher Courts Civil Proceedings) and an experienced litigator who brings an organised and analytical yet empathetic approach to her cases that is commended by clients and counsel alike. Throughout her time at Laytons, Rebekah has been at the coalface of important and at times groundbreaking commercial litigation.
Rebekah’s practice is not confined to one small niche – it reflects the diverse and international nature of the instructions our disputes practice receives, where our primary driver is not whether a particular dispute fits into a template, but how we can design and implement a holistic approach to each client’s unique needs.
That said, most of Rebekah’s cases are multi-jurisdictional in nature and involve significant financial issues. She has convened legal teams from different countries to devise strategies for our clients, in both litigation and arbitration, that are multi-dimensional and take account of real-world pressures and opportunities.
Rebekah’s recent work includes:
- LMAA and ad hoc arbitrations concerning assets valued at over $100m
- a multi-million Euro commercial court action for an Austrian client for non-payment of goods
- what is believed to be the first challenge to a restraint order under the Criminal Justice and Data Protection Regulations 2014
- a Supreme Court appeal whereby it was established that the tort of malicious prosecution does apply to civil claims
