Sexual Assault Claims

We understand how difficult it is to report a sexual assault and begin a case for compensation. Our ethos is to listen and advise and take people through what a claim will involve. We deal sensitively and discreetly with anyone who approaches us for advice.

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.

We fully understand how difficult it is to discuss sexual assault, particularly when the accused is well-known. Victims of alleged sexual assault and rape, male and female, are granted automatic lifelong anonymity as protection. We believe that no-one is above the law and that only by challenging insidious behaviour will change happen.

Jill GreenfieldDushal MehtaClaire Glasgow and Harriet Salvesen-Sawh are very experienced in high-profile cases and act sensitively and respectfully to prepare a claim where appropriate. Our clients always come first and any conversation with them is confidential.

We are also honest with potential claimants that where the accused lacks viable funds, a personal injury claim is unlikely to be possible and will instead involve CICA, the government funded Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

I have been working with Jill Greenfield and Claire Glasgow in the personal injury department since June 2022. My review can only go a short way to compliment Claire and Jill and in particular the wonderful work they do. Their professionalism and accessibility was there from the very first phone call, to finalising a successful sexual harassment claim. When dealing with a difficult emotional subject as mine, I felt empathy, understanding and care from Claire and Jill. Emails were answered almost immediately and there always seemed to be an open line for whatever I needed. I have dealt with solicitors throughout the last 20 years of my professional career, however none have come close to this firm. The work they do seems personal, the compassion is immeasurable. I am so grateful I used Field Fisher in particular Claire to take me through a really challenging time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so kind and gracious. 


When Claire (Fieldfisher) took on my case with the integrity and intelligence that they/she did. I felt supported, clearer and no longer alone in my battle. Claire and the entire team helped me get to the other side. Her compassion, patience and knowledge grounded me, heard me and I knew that my very best outcome, well-being and sense of justice was what they were striving to attain at all points of the now closed case. Incredible women so thankful for the work they did.


Highly experienced professionals able to obtain brilliant results for clients, whatever the claim and whatever their needs.
