Rebecca has significant experience in both domestic criminal litigation and extradition, having acted for defendants in a wide range of investigations from serious fraud, money laundering, bribery and corruption, to sexual offences and offences involving violence or drugs. She advises on a wide range of white collar crime matters including SFO and FCA investigations. She has extensive experience of representing individuals at police station interviews.
Rebecca specialises in cases involving cross-jurisdictional elements. She has successfully defended many persons requested by other states, both inside and outside the EU in extradition proceedings at all levels. She has experience in advising in sanctions cases, and in providing advice to those subject to Interpol red notices and mutual legal assistance requests. Many of these international cases require an understanding of human rights and, in addition to casework, Rebecca provides training on human rights to international audiences. She has also represented one of only three persons prosecuted in the UK for an offence of universal jurisdiction.
Rebecca has co-written one of the leading practitioner texts on extradition law, now in its second edition.
Rebecca has Higher Rights of Audience (Criminal). She has a PhD in Art History from the University of Bristol.
