Rebecca Sparrow, Senior Associate at Penningtons Manches

Profile

Rebecca is a senior associate in the Court of Protection team. She qualified as a solicitor in 2009 and joined the firm in January 2014.

She advises clients and their families on the appropriate vehicle for their compensation to be managed; including the management of funds for clients who lack capacity to manage their property and financial affairs and fall within the jurisdiction of the Court of Protection and clients who have retained capacity but require a personal injury trust.
