Inquests

Inquests

Advocacy at inquests requires a solid understanding of the nature and rules of inquests. Exploring issues and advancing positive cases before a coroner requires a different approach than that deployed in adversarial hearings.

Members of Charter Chambers have significant experience acting in inquests, including Article 2 and jury inquests. Members of Chambers offer strong advocacy skills, and experience in dealing with technical and sensitive medical matters and vulnerable witnesses and clients. In addition to wide experience of coronial hearings, Members of Chambers benefit from the range of other, related work undertaken in Chambers, including medical regulation, health and safety, criminal and public law.

Members of Chambers have acted in high profile inquests and accept instructions to represent interested persons all over the Country. Clients include medical and other professionals, regulatory bodies and family members.
