Our specialist health and social care inquest team is one of the largest in the country. We deal in excess of 600 inquests a year, providing both an advisory and advocacy service.

Led by a former coroner, the strength, depth and expertise of our specialist team means we provide unparalleled, responsive advice on the issues facing you and your staff before, during and after an inquest.

We can help protect your organisation’s reputation and give your staff the support they need in the lead up to and during an inquest. We provide specialist, comprehensive, cost effective legal advice to healthcare, emergency services, housing and insurer clients. We act on all kinds of inquest from the routine to the most sensitive and high profile inquests.

Our team is national which means that we can assist you quickly and conveniently.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Specialist advocacy

    We combine specialist advocacy with a deep understanding of our clients’ sectors so that the same lawyer will handle your case from the outset to representation in court, making the process more cost effective and convenient for you.

  • Complete inquest process support

    We guide you through all aspects of the inquest process including a strategy plan from the outset along with risk management advice, witness familiarisation and advice on avoiding “preventing future deaths” reports.

  • A specialist in-house service

    We offer a unique inquest management service where we manage all or part of your in-house inquest function. We also offer a review/ renew service of your in-house inquest service and implement processes to ensure that high risk cases are identified early and lower risk cases are handled in an efficient and timely way to enhance the relationship with local coroners.
