IBB’s child abuse solicitors and sexual assault lawyers have successfully represented victims of sexual assault who claim they were abused in the 1970s and 1980s, while playing for QPR. We have recovered compensation for the harm caused by those sexual assaults.
The alleged perpetrator of these offences, Christopher Gieler, died in 2002. During his life time, he was not convicted on any offences relating to sexual abuse.
The position of Chris Gieler, in QPR’s youth development programme, “gave him both the opportunity and power to sexually abuse young players he came into contact with” (Independent Review into Child Sexual Abuse in Football 1970-2005) .
Supporting victims of historic child abuse at QPR in the 1970s and 1980s
We have supported victims of alleged childhood sexual abuse at Queens Park Rangers, to obtain justice and compensation for the abuse and trauma they experienced at QPR. If you were a child who played for QPR in the 1970s or 1980s, or are the parent of a child who did so, or if you worked for QPR during this period, we may be able to help you.
Coming forward may help those victims of childhood sexual abuse obtain justice and the compensation they deserve, which may also enable them to gain access to private medical treatment to assist in coping with the consequences of the harm they continue to experience.
We know from our experience that a number of those who played for QPR in the 1970s and 1980s, lived in and around West London, including Ruislip and Uxbridge. If you had connections with the club during these years please do contact us in confidence, to see if you can assist.
