Court of Appeal Success in Child Care Proceedings


Trinity Child Care and Family barrister, Kate Fenwick successfully appeared on behalf of the appellant Local Authority at the Court of Appeal.

The appeal arose out of the Court’s decision to refuse the Local Authority’s applications for Care and Placement Orders, as well as the subsequent welfare analysis. The Local Authority's appeal before King LJ, Baker LJ and Moor LJ was allowed. The case has been remitted for rehearing.

At the hearing Trinity barristers, Leslie McKenzie appeared for the Mother and Katherine Wood appeared on behalf of the Father.
