Rebecca Young Associate, Dispute Resolution

Experience Profile

Rebecca is an Associate in the Dispute Resolution team, within our Business Legal Services division. 

Based in Slater and Gordon Lawyers' Manchester office, she covers all aspects of commercial litigation; specialising in contractual disputes, commercial and corporate disputes, franchising disputes and professional negligence.

She has expertise in contractual disputes, whether that be for businesses chasing a simple debt or advising individual consumers on the purchase of faulty goods.

Rebecca has a wide range of experience in advising in often complex shareholder or partnership disputes, ranging from the breakdown in family relationships to investment by business angels.

She also has a particular expertise in franchise disputes, acting for both franchisees and franchisers. Rebecca’s knowledge and understanding of the franchise model enables her to provide legal advice quickly and with a consideration to wider commercial concerns, including how a dispute may impact upon the wider franchise network.

Rebecca also has extensive experience in professional negligence claims. She specialises in advising claimants - including individuals, trusts and companies - on financial services disputes, professional negligence claims against other firms of solicitors and claims against accountants.

On top of this, Rebecca frequently provides general advice to new or existing clients on contractual provisions, the commercialism of an arrangement or assessment of risk when embarking on a new relationship. She provides both legal and commercial advice to clients, quickly getting to grips with a client’s business and an understanding of the ultimate objective.

Rebecca assists both individual and corporate clients to resolve disputes through negotiation and mediation, and where necessary through litigation. Where litigation is unavoidable, our Dispute Resolution team is able to explore funding options that might be available to clients and assist clients in budgeting for legal costs throughout the duration of a case.

Rebecca is praised by clients for providing advice in an understandable form in what can often be complex disputes.
