We are proud of our close association with open Clasp Theatre company and to promote their affecting and emotional  film about Coercive control – Rattlesnake.

Although Coercive control has been a criminal offence since 2015, it is still not identified or understood, and its impact is often overlooked in cases in the family and criminal courts. The film of this play has been used as a highly effective training tool for Police officers dealing with this complex issue.

This is recommended viewing for anyone working in this field.

Cris McCurley and Gillie Robson are both Partners at Ben Hoare Bell LLP and are previous and current members of the Open Clasp board of trustees respectively.
