Kinstellar’s Belgrade Office has successfully advised the Serbian Orthodox Church on a case heard by an English High Court regarding claims of alleged abuse by clergymen in Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Croatia. DWF and Michael McParland, QC, also reportedly provided legal assistance to the Church in the UK.

According to Kinstellar, “the High Court dismissed the claims earlier this year. Following the judgement, on August 13, 2020, the High Court handed down a 'wasted costs' judgment that obliges the claimants' solicitors to compensate the defendant for the costs of the proceeding.”

Kinstellar’s team was led by Counsel Petar Grozdanovic.

DWF’s team reportedly consisted of English Partner Paul Donnelly and Associate Samantha Chambers.
