Part of the Child Abuse Team
Nesha joined Bolt Burdon Kemp as a Solicitor in the Child Abuse Team in February 2017.
Nesha specialises in representing survivors in claims arising from sexual, physical and emotional abuse. She pursues claims against Defendants including the Scout Association, local authorities, schools and religious institutions. She also acts in claims against individual abusers and social services.
Nesha studied LLB Law and Criminology at Kingston University and went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Birmingham. Nesha qualified as a solicitor in May 2015. Since starting her career as a solicitor, Nesha has worked exclusively for claimants on a variety of cases including employer’s liability, child abuse and catastrophic injury. She has extensive experience in representing claimants who have faced spurious allegations of fraud.
Whilst she was a trainee, Nesha assisted on a high value abuse case on behalf of three individuals who were severely sexually abused in foster care and suffered extensive psychiatric damage as a result. Complex issues were raised in respect of liability, causation and quantum. The matter resolved with one of the highest settlements ever for this type of claim.
Nesha has a particular passion for helping the most vulnerable of society. Outside of work, she has done extensive outreach to those living on the streets, including women and young girls who were forced into prostitution. She continues to support those most in need and is particularly interested in the connection between addiction and abuse.
