Marc Willems QC Succeeds in St Helena Supreme Court
Marc Willems QC secures the largest ever award of damages on the South Atlantic island of Saint Helena.
Marc was representing a very vulnerable adult who had been neglected on island for over a decade. She had been kept in appalling conditions where the care provided was "woefully lacking". The case made international news when the Wass enquiry into Saint Helena devoted a whole chapter to "Adult M’s" plight.
The Chief Justice announcing the Judgment on island on 1st November said:
“I am aware not only of the professionalism but also the humanity displayed by the advocates on behalf of M to secure for M the level of care which M has deserved since birth"
