Providing specialist guidance at each stage of an intricate procedure.

Who We Support

Interested People

If you have been granted Interested Party status by the Coroner then it has been determined that you have ‘a sufficient interest’ involved. We offer specialist legal advice and ensure that your interests are best presented at the Inquest.


Should you have been asked to provide an account to the Coroner about the circumstances of the death of the individual concerned, we can help you with the drafting and submission of your witness statement and support you throughout the process.

Family of the Deceased

An Inquest is an incredibly difficult process for the family of the deceased. As an Interested Party, you or your legal representative can ask your own questions of the witnesses so long as they are relevant to the scope of the inquest.

Helping You Navigate a Complex Process

Inquests are public judicial inquiries to understand the circumstances of the death of an individual. The inquest is tasked with determining who the deceased was, when and where they died, the medical cause of death and how they came by their death. The inquest should be limited to responding to only these questions and should not deal with issues of blame or responsibility for the death. While the process can often be confusing and stressful, they are vital to understand how the death has come about and if possible, to prevent similar circumstances from happening again.

Thorough preparation and specialist advice are required to reach a successful outcome and limit the difficulties and stress the process may cause. It is also important to seek legal advice that can support you throughout each stage of the inquest.

Our team has represented clients in some of the most high-profile inquests in recent years, including amongst others, the Hillsborough Inquests. We have extensive experience working with interested parties, individuals and organisations — so you can be confident in the quality of our service no matter what your circumstances may be.

From the beginning of the process, we provide bespoke advice on your role in the Inquest.

If you were involved in the circumstances leading to the individual’s death, we will consider whether you should apply to the Coroner for interested party status. We will discuss your position with you and advise you whether it is in your interests to seek a more involved role in the inquest or not.

You may have already been designated ‘interested person’’ status and if so, we will advise you on the evidence served and support you during the inquest.

Our expertise in the field has seen us commended in the Legal 500 for our commitment to client care and thoroughness when acting on cases.
