What clients say about me

“I cannot thank you enough for helping me in this matter. Finally I can put the whole thing behind me and start a new phase of my life.” Settlement agreement client

“We have worked with Rebecca since she joined Leeds Day in 2017 and she is a key advisor to our business. Emotional intelligence, strong business ethics and sound commercial judgement might not be qualities one would instantly associate with lawyers, but Rebecca has these in abundance. That is why she is so effective at unpicking and resolving even the most complex employment challenges. In an HR crisis, we have always received a prompt and considered response. However, it is also important to acknowledge that Rebecca’s diligence in completing strategic work such as corporate policies for the business has undoubtedly reduced the frequency of these HR crises. Having the support of Rebecca, with the backup of the experienced and extensive legal team at Leeds Day, offers our business peace of mind and allows us to focus on our own clients.” Director Top Hex Ltd
