Claimant Abuse

Chambers has a dedicated and highly experienced Claimant Abuse team, led by Barbara Connolly QC an experienced silk and, until her appointment to the judiciary last year, Rosalind Coe QC (HHJ Coe).

The team covers a wide range of work, representing those who have been subject to physical and sexual abuse both recently and in the past in stand-alone and group actions. We act against individuals and organisations including:

  • Religious and educational institutions and authorities;
  • Local authorities;
  • Government institutions, including detention centres;

We have been involved in complex and ground breaking cases at both first instance and appellant level:

We hold seminars and give talks on matters of topical interest. We have a wealth of experience in this field and are able to use our advocacy skills as well as a sensitive approach to vulnerable clients, in order to obtain successful outcomes in settled and contested cases.
