Direct Access Barrister

Rebecca Upton

I am a barrister practising in all areas of criminal law, with over 20 years experience.

I represent those charged with the most serious criminal offences in the Crown Court and Court of Appeal. I also represent interested parties in the Coroner's Court and before their regulatory bodies. I am able to assist with advice and representation in relation to applications made by or on behalf of the police.

Area of Law


I have practised in the criminal courts since I was called to the Bar and have considerable experience in all areas of this work. I regularly advise and represent those in the Crown Court and Court of Appeal.

What sort of work do I do?

I am able to advise in writing, assist in the preparation of the case, and represent those charged in court. I am also able to advise on appealing conviction and sentence, as well as ancillary orders, whether they are made following conviction or on a stand alone basis.
I am able to assist interested parties at inquests and those who may find themselves before their regulatory bodies, whether there are criminal charges or not.

Who do I work for?

Those who are charged and appear before the criminal courts, all interested parties in coronial proceedings, and professionals appearing before their regulators.
