Rebecca is an associate in the Group Actions team specialising in environmental matters and works with partners Stephanie Eedy, Gwen Evans and Neil Stockdale.
Rebecca specialises in group actions on behalf of communities across England and Wales affected by various forms of environmental nuisance as well as homeowners of blighted properties, devalued by road or airport expansions.
Rebecca represents groups of residents in private nuisance actions who experience odour, noise or dust nuisance at their properties, often acting against large companies, securing compensation for residents and more importantly an end to the nuisance that they experience.
Rebecca also acts for groups of homeowners who wish to take action under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973, claiming compensation to reflect loss of value to their properties as a result of increased physical factors such as noise, vibration, smell, fumes, smoke or artificial lighting, caused by certain road developments or airport expansions.
Rebecca joined the Environment team in June 2012, securing a training contact with Hugh James in August 2013 which commenced in September 2015. Upon qualification in March 2017 Rebecca returned to her area of specialism in the Group Actions team specialising in environmental matters.
