SPECIFIC AREA OF PRACTICE
Under any circumstance, sex abuse claims are challenging and difficult for everyone involved. In many circumstances the reputation and ultimate survival of the defendant must be balanced with the sensitivity of the victim. Our team of senior lawyers are experienced in handling all aspects of sensitive sex abuse claims.
Sex abuse claims often arise long after the abuse has occurred. Investigation and defence of these claims is complex and issues such as competing policies and coverage, limitation periods and minors can occur. We have experience with sex abuse claims involving residential schools, government, social service and not-for-profit organizations as well as commercial enterprises including the hospitality industry.
