Handling Public Inquiries with expertise and sensitivity

Dedicated Public Inquiries Team

The team have been involved in many major inquiries including: Al-Sweady, Baha Mousa, Shipman and Piper Alpha.

Strength & Depth

Team members have experience advising and representing clients on areas such as Product Liability, Health & Safety and Regulatory issues.

Investigative Interviewing

Senior team members are fully trained in cognitive interviewing techniques and hold Intersol Global’s Level 3 Certificate in Investigative Interviewing.

 

With over 300 lawyers and support staff we have the ability to manage major highly sensitive projects with substantial resources.

We regularly deal with matters under the full glare of the media with every member of the team (lawyer or support staff) having an understanding that their work is under close public and media scrutiny. We have years of experience effectively managing a wide range of investigations, often high-profile and sensitive.  

Some decisions reached by Public Inquiry whether procedural or factual may be subject to judicial review. Our wide experience of public sector judicial review includes acting for central government, local authorities, universities and regulatory bodies.

We have an in-house forensic accounting team with substantial experience of different types of investigations.
