Position

Reka has established a mixed public and criminal law practice with a particular emphasis on public inquiries, inquests and extradition.

 

She has been involved in most of the major high-profile public inquiries in the last five years. Recent instructions include the Manchester Arena Inquiry representing British Transport Police (led junior), the Undercover Policing Inquiry representing the Metropolitan Police Service (led junior) and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse representing a residential school (sole counsel). As a result of her experience, Reka is well placed to advise clients on all aspects of their involvement in inquiry proceedings.

 

In inquest proceedings, Reka has developed particular experience acting for police forces and corporate bodies in proceedings engaging Article 2. She is alive to the sensitivities that may arise in such cases and is able to deal confidently with complex legal issues. As a result of her practice as a criminal advocate, principally defending, Reka is well placed to address juries and robustly examine witnesses, including expert witnesses.
