About Rachel

Rachel is an experienced litigator with a proven track record in the field of private client litigation.  She has represented clients in a wide variety of disputes, but mainly deals with litigation in the High Court, County Court and Court of Protection. She provides advice and assistance to clients both in trying to resolve disputes by negotiation and/or mediation, and in preparing cases for trial where necessary.

Rachel is a member of ACTAPS and holds the STEP Advanced Certificate in Trusts Disputes. Her principal area of practice is in the field of contentious estates.  Having been involved in many contentious probate disputes, she has a proven track record of successfully assisting clients to achieve cost effective and timely settlements in Inheritance Act claims, trusts disputes and will challenges.

Many of her cases involve financial abuse and undue influence, and disputes over lifetime transactions where someone is still alive but has lost capacity. Rachel has a particular specialism in contentious proceedings in the Court of Protection, including deputyship/attorney removal, financial recovery and as replacement deputy.  She can provide pragmatic advice to clients in sensitive family disputes.

Rachel is listed as a Recommended Lawyer and Next Generation Partner in The Legal 500 (2024 edition).
