Rebecca Cox joins our property team in Crediton

7th July 2021

We are delighted to welcome solicitor Rebecca Cox to our property team in Crediton.

Rebecca specialises in agricultural property work, including the sale and purchase of farms and farmland and rural and agricultural property, charging of rural land and property, rights and easements, and the transfer of sporting rights. Rebecca has a good working knowledge of rural payment schemes and grant schemes.

Rebecca has worked in rural property practice in Devon for the past eighteen years and is a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association.

Outside of work Rebecca enjoys walking and running and spending time with her family.

We asked Rebecca a few questions:

Why did you choose to work at Gilbert Stephens Solicitors?

I was keen to work for a Devon based, forward thinking, firm.

 Are there aspects of your work that are particularly satisfying or challenging?

I love dealing with unregistered land, and although it can be tricky, find it rather like dealing with a large jigsaw puzzle.

Do you have any ambitions, professional or personal, that you would like to pursue in the future?

I would love to run a marathon, just once!

What advice would you give to someone considering a career in law?

The advice that I was given was to try to remember that it is a profession as well as a business.

What are you passionate about outside of work?

I love running…albeit slowly!
