Being involved in a public inquiry or other major investigation can impose a heavy burden on an organisation and on the individuals within it. Whether you are a core participant or a witness there will be understandable concern to protect your reputation and interests. The challenges of disclosure can also be significant and time-consuming. Individuals will have concerns about their own evidence and the expectations placed upon them.
Our lawyers have significant experience in representing clients in public inquiries and other investigations. This experience runs across the firm including our clinical law, public law and litigation teams. This means that we are able to quickly mobilise a team with real practical experience of both inquiries and your area of work.
We have worked on many of the most high-profile and significant public inquiries in recent years. For example, acting for the London Ambulance Service at the Grenfell Tower public inquiry, an individual at the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, and are currently assisting Greater Manchester Police on the Manchester Arena public inquiry.
