Representing Clients through a Public Inquiry

The Inquiries Act 2005 allows a government minister to set up a public inquiry where it appears to her/him that particular events have caused or may case public concern. A public inquiry can conduct a wide investigation across a range of different agencies. A key purpose of a public inquiry is to ensure that 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.

Hodge Jones and Allen has extensive experience of acting for individuals who are core participants to inquiries.
