Rebecca joined Hugh James in March 2018 as a Senior Associate, having progressed to Associate and Team Leader within the Travel Litigation team at Slater and Gordon, London. She has over 12 years’ experience in this area, regularly dealing with complex issues of jurisdiction and applicable law.

Rebecca's passion is helping victims gain access to rehabilitation and financial help at a time of vulnerability and often desperation, more acutely experienced when accidents occur abroad. Clients comment on Rebecca's down to earth and compassionate approach and feel quickly at ease with her.

Rebecca has spoken on travel law related issues on radio (BBC 3 Counties) and has led training to other legal professionals (Linked to Law). She has also had success in cases involving botched cosmetic surgery abroad. 

More recently Rebecca has advised a Local Authority on the implications of the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements 2018 to a tourism project launching in Wales in 2020.
