Our directors

Hopkin Murray Beskine is led by four directors and has a strong team of solicitors, trainee solicitors, paralegals and support staff.

Founding director and senior solicitor Sarah Beskine is recognised as a specialist in the field of family law and is consulted by clients seeking divorce, separation and with conflicts regarding children’s disputes, both domestic and international. Sarah is one of the select few lawyers who are referred work by the Lord Chancellor’s International Child Abduction and Contact Unit (ICACU). Sarah is also qualified as a mediator and collaborative lawyer, and can where suitable, work directly with children in mediation.

Director and senior solicitor Lesley Curtis is recognised as an outstanding individual in the field of housing law, and is particularly sought out for her expertise in disrepair and property litigation. She assists tenants experiencing serious disrepair problems, and acts in possession cases and other housing and property disputes. Lesley has a reputation for conducting litigation with tenacity, flair and legal prowess and is known for her excellent judgment and exceptional commitment to her clients. She offers ‘no win no fee’ funding arrangements (Conditional Fee Agreements) in appropriate cases.

Director and senior solicitor Rebekah Carrier specialises in public and housing law and has an outstanding reputation in her field. She frequently acts in public interest cases including complex judicial review cases and proceedings in the Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights and has a particular specialism in housing-related public law challenges. Rebekah has acted in a number of cases relating to welfare benefits reform and cases involving discrimination in local authority’s allocation schemes.

Director and senior solicitor Ann Bevington also specialises in housing and public law. Ann has expertise both in complex housing cases and in judicial review, from the County Court to the Supreme Court, meaning she is very well placed to provide comprehensive and holistic advice and representation. She has an excellent reputation for her work defending possession proceedings and acting in unlawful eviction cases and disrepair claims, and frequently advises in homeless cases. She is the co-author of the current edition of ‘Defending possession proceedings’ (Legal Action Group), the leading guide to law and practice for those facing possession claims.
