Members of Crown Office Chambers act for interested parties in the highest profile inquests and public inquiries.
Chambers has particular strengths in Clinical Negligence and Healthcare, Health & Safety and Regulatory law, Personal Injury and Industrial Disease. Members are uniquely well–placed to appear in any subsequent criminal or civil proceedings and are frequently instructed to advise and represent clients from the very outset of a case through to its conclusion.
Members of Chambers have experience of inquests across a broad range of contexts, including Article 2 ECHR cases. Examples include deaths in the workplace, on construction sites, cases involving fire and electrical safety, explosions, carbon monoxide poisoning, deaths as a result of medical treatment (or lack of treatment), in residential and nursing care homes, in schools and nurseries, in custody, in road traffic accidents and police pursuits.
