Rebecca joined Flint Bishop in May 2015 as a debt recovery paralegal after graduating with first-class honours from Nottingham Trent University. During her time in Debt Recovery, Rebecca rapidly progressed through the department and quickly became a key contact for many client relationships.
In March 2018 after a rigorous selection process, Rebecca was awarded a training contract with the firm in the Commercial Dispute Resolution department, where she worked directly with Chief Executive Qamer Ghafoor and Head of Dispute Resolution Nick Wells. As part of her training contract, Rebecca spent four months at our Ashbourne office with the Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts and Residential Conveyancing departments before returning to Derby to support the Employment team. Throughout her training contract, Rebecca was also tasked with various projects and audits specifically related to maximising efficiencies.
Rebecca was a standout trainee during her two-year training contract, gaining the confidence of senior team members and the Chief Executive when assisting on high-level legal matters. Anyone who has worked with Rebecca will know she has a keen eye for detail and is incredibly analytical in her approach – key skills which she cultivated and deployed on various projects.
Upon qualification in 2020, Rebecca took on the position as the firm’s Practice Management Solicitor. This was a critical appointment for the firm, and a role that did not exist prior to this date.
As Practice Management Solicitor, Rebecca works closely with Qamer on a wide-range of management projects, particularly related to observing and redefining core processes and procedures across departments. Key areas of focus are efficiencies, IT systems, workflows, data capture & SLAs. Rebecca has also been closely involved in the set up and management of the Claimant Personal Injury department as well as providing direction to the Recoveries team.
As we look ahead to further periods of growth, Rebecca’s role is critical in allowing us to share best practices across the firm and achieve efficiencies in a number of areas.
