Our Inquest team provides both an advisory and advocacy service. Cases are typically handled by the same lawyer from the outset, through to representation in court. We rarely use counsel unless we think this is appropriate in the circumstances and with your agreement. We support clients and their staff through all aspects of the Inquest process, giving initial advice on whether legal representation will be needed, preparing statements, guiding witnesses and providing advocacy at the Inquest itself. This approach provides reassuring continuity, and it saves time and money.
Our inquest experience is second to none. We have acted for clients in the two biggest and most complex inquests in England – the 7/7 bombings and the Hillsborough inquest (which is still ongoing) and our team comprises 7 partners, 2 associates and 5 lawyers across our offices in London, Birmingham and Leeds.
