Inquest Team

9 St John Street's Inquest Team represents and advises parties in all types of inquests and pre-inquest hearings.

The members of the group regularly represent hospital trusts; police forces; families; care homes and other interested parties in everything from brief hearings with coroners sitting alone to lengthy Article 2 inquests being heard by juries.

The inquest group offers clients and solicitors a choice of inquest practitioners from a range of disciplines – with inquest barristers who are also experts in clinical negligence; health and safety; regulatory law; personal injury and criminal law.
