Rebecca is experienced in all aspects of environmental law and has a particular interest in waste and minerals. Her experience includes enforcement and prosecution work, interviews under caution and in-house training for clients on topical issues and European law impacts.
Rebecca was recently involved in assisting the minerals sector's professional bodies on legal issues arising from the transposition of the mining waste directive. This exercise resulted in a useful protocol guidance issued by the CBI Minerals Group which is now widely used by the sector.
Rebecca frequently advises on the legally tricky issue of whether material is or isn't waste and when it ceases to be so. One recent case involved at the restoration of an old minerals site with material alleged to be waste by the regulator.
Her extensive regulatory experience also includes advising and assisting clients in the field of health and safety law, particularly asbestos control and fire safety matters.
Rebecca qualified as a solicitor in 1987. She began her career in family law and moved to planning and environmental law in that the early 1990s at Mills & Reeve, based in the firm's Norwich and Cambridge offices.
