To protect her clients' confidentiality, Rebecca tends to settle many of her cases outside of court and keeps her clients away from the spotlight whenever possible. For those cases where litigation is necessary, Rebecca fights hard for her clients and is a skilful and intelligent litigator.
She has expertise in all areas of family law including divorce, matrimonial finance, children, cohabitation, pre nuptial agreements and Hague Convention cases. She focuses on complex financial cases especially those with an international dimension and financial disputes between parents who are not married. She has a particular interest in City based divorces, receiving regular referrals from London's Magic Circle corporate law firms and leading investment banks. She acts for many board level investment bankers, lawyers and entrepreneurs and also for the wives of many well-known City figures.
Rebecca is also the 'go to' family lawyer for wealthy London mothers who share her business card at the school gate and welcome the superior level of support she gives to help them through the process. Rebecca also ensures she is always available to deal with a crisis and take the heat out of difficult situations.
Rebecca is recommended by both Chambers & Partners UK and The Legal 500 UK. Chambers & Partners UK describe Rebecca as "incredibly bright, knowledgeable and quick witted, with good client interpersonal skills". Teertha Gupta QC 4 Paper Buildings comments that "Rebecca Cockcroft is without doubt the star performer in the field of money and children work". She is also featured in the prestigious publication Hot 100 Lawyers in the UK 2012 edition where she was noted as being "razor sharp" and was the only family solicitor from London to appear in the list that year.
