Rebecca is a Legal Director in Osborne Clarke’s banking and finance team. She has over 20 years' experience acting for banks, corporate borrowers and financial sponsors on a wide range of corporate finance and banking matters, with a particular emphasis on mid-market acquisition finance transactions.

Rebecca joined Osborne Clarke’s Thames Valley office as a newly qualified lawyer in 2000. She subsequently spent some time working for Gilbert and Tobin in Sydney before returning to OC. Rebecca completed a secondment with the financial sponsors team at a major clearing bank which gave her a valuable insight into the demands and challenges faced by clients.

Her key clients include NatWest, Lloyds Banking Group, Santander and HSBC and she is experienced at leading bilateral and syndicated transactions both in the UK and across multiple jurisdictions with a particular focus on healthcare, technology and retail businesses.

Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

I have worked with some of my clients for over 20 years. Those longstanding relationships have allowed me to earn a high degree of trust and develop an in-depth knowledge of individual clients' preferred approach on deals, which helps me deliver the commercial advice my clients demand in a way which best suits the individual client.

I particularly enjoy mentoring junior colleagues and helping to develop the skills of our Solicitor Apprentices and Trainee Solicitors who will be the OC stars of the future.

"She is a strong transactional lawyer who is technically good and good at representing clients."


Rebecca is an absolutely excellent lawyer
