A care home resident`s unexplained or suspicious death can cause great distress and uncertainty. Coronial and subsequent criminal and regulatory investigations prolong the unease, draining staff morale. Difficulties become acute where managers and employees are underprepared, lacking knowledge of their role and rights in the inquest process. An understanding of how inquests work is key to enabling providers to participate in a way that protects their reputation and the welfare of their staff and residents.
Our professional regulatory team and inquest law experts provide advice and representation to companies and professional people facing regulatory, criminal and coronial investigations. This includes representation at inquests, advocacy before professional regulatory tribunals, appeals, criminal investigations and judicial review.
Our professional regulatory team is led by partner Andrew Katzen. We offer advice and representation for interim orders committees, professional conduct committees, fitness to practice panels, and the Care Standards Tribunal.
Partner Daniel Machover leads our expert inquest law team, helping clients to participate effectively at all stages of the coronial process, from the initial investigation through to the inquest or public inquiry.
Our exceptional lawyers, ranked in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, combine the determination and fighting spirit of a traditional criminal defence firm with the intellectual rigour and analytical skills of the finest regulatory and inquest lawyers.
