Why choose our Inquires and Inquests lawyers?Fieldfisher's Inquests, Inquiries and Investigations team is market leading. Our hugely experienced team advises clients in relation to the most high profile matters, such as the Hillsborough Inquests, 7/7 bombings inquests, Manchester Arena Inquests, Grenfell Tower Inquiry, the Leveson Inquiry and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.
Alongside our work on high profile matters, our expertise enables us to provide strategic, reputational and commercial advice to clients who need to conduct their own investigations, including where the need is for a swift and focused review to be conducted. Our top tier practice can advise clients on the conduct of their investigation, as well as its interactions with regulators and other enforcement bodies to prevent or minimise any action they may take.
Through our broad range of experience we help clients to anticipate what is to come, to ensure that they are ahead of the curve. We work tirelessly to place our knowledge and experience at our clients' disposal.
We pride ourselves on providing a flexible resource to our clients. Where it is important for senior executives and the client's internal legal function to carry on with day-to-day work we can provide partner led teams to direct and manage the client's response to oversee and advise on the investigation. We can also embed our lawyers within in-house teams to bolster resource and provide our specialist advice.
