Sexual assault and rape are criminal offences and should be reported to the police. It is also possible to pursue a civil claim for personal injury, including psychological damage, against the perpetrator or an employer where the assault took place at work.
Although clearly distressing to discuss, victims of alleged sexual assault and rape, male and female, are granted automatic lifelong anonymity as protection. Jill Greenfield and the team are very experienced in high-profile cases and act sensitively and respectfully to prepare a claim where appropriate. Any conversation with them is confidential.
Jill currently represents UK victims of alleged assault by Harvey Weinstein and other high-profile defendants in civil claims. Jill won a landmark civil rape case on behalf of a woman drugged and sexually abused by millionaire Christopher Dawes by helping the victim present evidence accepted by the judge. The victim received more than £250,000 in damages.
Jill has become a determined advocate for victims' rights and access to justice for women.
