A formidable legal team, your trusted partner

Mr S was placed in a foster care placement by the social work department when aged 6 years old. He was placed in the foster care placement by social workers However, over the course of a five year period, he sustained physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Mr S spoke to the police a number of years later when he was an adult. He gave evidence at a criminal trial whereby the foster carer was found guilty of the offences committed against Mr S. Mr S then consulted Livingstone Brown for advice.

Livingstone Brown's specialist solicitors were able to help Mr S by undertaking extensive enquiries to locate evidence of the abuse taking place and raising court proceedings against the local authority.

Mr S was successful in settling his case out of court for a substantial five figure sum in compensation.
