Public Inquiries

A first tier ranked team with unparalleled experience and expertise in acting for, and responding to, public inquiries.

Running a public inquiry, or responding to requests an inquiry makes, can be complex, pressured, high profile and daunting. Our dedicated Public Inquiries team can help support you in all aspects of your management of, or engagement with, a public inquiry.

We represent both statutory and non-statutory investigations and inquiries.  Our team are recognised as leaders in the field and have been instructed in relation to some of the most significant public inquiries in recent years. We advise those conducting inquiries, including advising on the establishment of the inquiry and assisting the chair or panel with their work. We also advise companies, public bodies, regulators and individual witnesses involved with public inquiries to assist them in navigating their interactions with the inquiry, including responding to witness statement requests and giving oral evidence.

We work on the highest profile and most sensitive matters, recently including the UK Covid-19 Inquiry, the Post Office Inquiry, the David Fuller Inquiry, the Brook House Inquiry and the Grenfell Tower Inquiry. We have also previously advised clients in relation to the Daniel Morgan Independent Panel, the Manchester Arena Inquiry, the Leveson Inquiry and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, among others.
