Rebecca Danby is a Senior Counsel in the Legal Department at GlaxoSmithKline. She supports the Consumer Healthcare business and, in particular, the global Family Oral Health and Denture Care brand teams. She carries out a general counsel-style role for her business units and therefore assists them with any legal issues that may come their way from advertising law issues to contracts with suppliers and from litigation to corporate acquisitions and disposals. The global nature of her business units means that she supports products all the way from the concept stage, through research and development, all the way to sales and marketing.

While at Simmons & Simmons, Rebecca specialised in equity capital markets transactions, in particular advising companies on primary and secondary listings on the London equity markets.
