Memberships

Resolution YRes

Rebecca is an associate within the family team at Farrer & Co. Her work includes assisting couples through divorce, advising on financial arrangements on the breakdown of a relationship, pre-nuptial agreements, as well as parenting disputes. Many of her cases involve complex financial issues and/or an international element.

Rebecca also advises clients in relation to private children law issues, in particular: which parent a child lives with, how that child should spend time with the other parent and permission to remove a child from England & Wales to a foreign country.The breakdown of a relationship can be a difficult time for all involved and Rebecca actively seeks to resolve matters in a constructive way. She is particularly interested in alternative forms of dispute resolution and avoiding court proceedings where this is appropriate and in her client’s best interests. Rebecca also has significant experience of litigation at the Central Family Court and High Court, should court intervention prove necessary.

Rebecca is a member of Resolution, an organisation of family lawyers and other professionals who believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters.

Prior to commencing her training contract at Farrer & Co, Rebecca read History at the University of Cambridge and completed the graduate programme at FTI Consulting. Rebecca qualified into the employment team in 2013 before specialising in family law.

In her spare time, Rebecca enjoys wild swimming, yoga and dining out with friends.
