The Inquiries Act 2005 allows a government minister to set up a public inquiry where it appears to them that particular events have caused or may cause public concern.

A public inquiry can conduct an investigation across a range of different agencies. A public inquiry ensures lessons are learned.

Where a public inquiry is established under the Act, individuals may be granted the right to participate in the inquiry as ‘core participants’.

We benefit from a wide range of legal expertise across the firm and are able to represent individuals in relation to varied public inquiries.

Examples of Public Inquiries we have worked on

  • The Undercover Policing Inquiry
  • The Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry
  • The Contaminated Blood Inquiry
