Her advice is focused on resolving the legal matter in the most practical and pragmatic way. I have dealt with many UK employment legal advisers in my career and Rebecca is one of the most proactive, helpful and balanced I have had the pleasure to work with. She is very good at explaining the risks and the likelihood of the identified risks and how to mitigate these.
