Crown Office Chambers is one of the country’s leading chambers in criminal regulatory and environmental law.
The team won the Health & Safety Set of the Year award at the Chambers UK Bar Awards in 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2016 and 5 members of chambers have previously won individual awards.
Our work includes, but is not limited to, corporate manslaughter, gross negligence manslaughter, health and safety, fire safety, inquests, public inquiries, nuclear safety, environmental pollution, trading standards, product safety, food safety and food hygiene, and appeals against prohibition and improvement notices. The majority of the team continue to work exclusively in these fields. Other members of chambers also have expertise in these fields and many members have expertise in civil claims enabling the team to provide advice on all legal issues arising out of incidents.
Members of the team have been and continue to be involved in most of the leading cases that have shaped this expanding area of corporate criminal law including HTM, Chargot, Baker v Quantum, Tangerine, Lion Steel, the Lakanal House fire inquest, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, the Hillsborough Inquests and the Alton Towers incident.
