We have extensive experience in representing organisations, employees, families and witnesses to ensure that their interests are fully represented during public and private inquiries and inquests. We are instructed often by corporate entities or individuals who seek to become Interested Parties or who are appointed as such by the Coroner. We have advised in relation to inquests involving complex issues of law, the role of the UK government and the role of foreign agencies in UK suspicious deaths.
We have acted in relation to some of the biggest UK public inquiries, including the Leveson Inquiry into press conduct, the Paddington and Hatfield rail crash Inquiries and a high-profile independent inquiry in the health sector.
