Legacy – Abuse

Our team have been defending abuse and failure to protect/remove claims for more than 25 years, on behalf of:

  • Insurers
  • Religious organisations
  • Educational establishments
  • Sporting clubs and bodies
  • Youth organisations
  • Local authorities
  • Police
  • Charities
  • Care providers and a wide variety of private companies

We are at the forefront of the development of the law in abuse claims, most notably with fundamental issues of vicarious liability and limitation. We have appeared in numerous precedent-setting cases in the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords/Supreme Court.

We provide a comprehensive service from notification to conclusion, working closely with our clients at every stage in order to achieve their desired outcome at the optimum point. We ensure that claims are sensitively handled, strategically planned and professionally managed in the manner appropriate to each case. Our methods have been proven to deliver desired outcomes and significant savings. We also advise upon strategic issues such as safeguarding and child protection policies, insurance indemnity and policy interpretation, information governance and media/reputation management.
