Inquests & Inquiries Team: Covid-19 Update
The inquests and inquiries team at 7BR is committed to providing all our professional and lay clients with the very highest quality service, notwithstanding the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 crisis. We have access to the necessary technology to enable our barristers and clients to participate remotely in conferences and court hearings.
The COVID-19 crisis will have an acute effect on the practice and management of inquests and coronial law in particular over the coming months. Our sympathies go out to all those affected by the crisis and our support to those working to combat it. The Chief Coroner’s latest public Guidance on the crisis is on his website here. Over the coming weeks, we will provide a series of legal updates which we hope will assist all our professional and lay clients in navigating their way through these challenging times.
7BR’s Inquests & Inquiries barristers provide expert representation to bereaved families, and public and private clients across a wide range of cases. 7BR’s multi-disciplinary approach is a key asset in this area, which can cut across a number of traditional practice areas including criminal law, clinical negligence and personal injury, health and safety and regulatory, family law, and public law.
7BR members also have extensive experience representing a range of interested persons at high profile inquests and in subsequent claims and proceedings. Members’ expertise covers Article 2 ECHR inquests in relation to all forms of state detention, mental health care, general clinical care, deaths in care homes, road traffic accidents, inquests arising from criminal conduct, and workplace deaths.
Members of 7BR have been instructed in the major public inquiries of recent years, including the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, the Undercover Policing Inquiry, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, the Mid-Staffordshire Inquiry, the Baha Mousa Inquiry, the Al-Sweady Inquiry and the Bloody Sunday Inquiry. Members have also recently been instructed in the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s inquiries into disabled access at Premier League football clubs, and the making of reasonable adjustments for defendants with mental disabilities in the criminal justice system.
