2017 has seen Lorraine King finish two cases involving international elements.
The first was a case involving the Local Authority wanting to place a child outside the court’s jurisdiction in Scotland. Lorraine represented the child in the court case. Scotland has a completely different court system to England and Wales and this is an area where few law firms have the experience and expertise. As a result of this case the higher courts have now given guidance to local authorities on how to manage cases where they wish to place children outside England and Wales.
The second case involved where a child was permanently placed in Romania with his Romanian grandparents having lived in the UK for a number of years. Lorraine represented the child’s Romanian father who throughout the proceedings resided in Romania and spoke no English.
Truemans has always had a reputation for having experienced lawyers who are able to deal with complex issues and who conduct their own advocacy.
This is continuing into areas of international law.
