In October 2013 Paul Gambaccini’s life took a turn that he could never have anticipated in his wildest nightmares. He was arrested as a part of Operation Yewtree, an investigation by the police into historic sexual offences allegedly committed by prominent BBC personalities. He immediately contacted Bindmans which was the beginning of a seven-year professional relationship.

Kate Goold, Bindmans LLP Crime Fraud and Regulatory Partner, who represented Mr Gambaccini said:

We guided and assisted Paul through some of the most gruelling challenges, both professional and personal, of his life. After spending almost a year languishing on police bail, no further action was taken.

This was the beginning of the fight back. Paul wanted his experience to mean something. We assisted Paul with making representations to the Home Affairs Select Committee regarding police bail where almost all our recommendations were adopted and the law was changed. We assisted Paul with taking action against the CPS and police and this resulted in a substantial financial settlement. Paul is now exploring his next challenge and shared his story with us in the video interview.
