Public Inquiries

We've represented organisations and individuals throughout the most significant public inquiries of recent decades.

Talk to us

We draw on our vast experience representing clients at public inquiries to both protect your interests and ensure your views are heard. 

Public inquiries are statutory investigations into major events which have caused, or are capable of causing, public concern.  Although a public inquiry may not rule on or determine any person's civil or criminal liability, in practice the reports and recommendations issued by public inquiry panels carry profound consequences and often change lives.  

We assist clients at every stage of the public inquiry process, including advising on preservation of evidence likely to be required at a future Inquiry, contributing to the inquiry’s terms of reference, securing core participant status, legal expenses funding, preparation of witness statements, giving evidence in person or making written submissions, responding to enquiries raised by the inquiry panel, managing reputational issues and, finally, implementing any necessary recommendations.
