Red Lion Chambers has outstanding expertise in conducting hearings before the Coroners’ courts as well as in other inquisitorial settings. Our inquest work ranges from workplace deaths and road traffic accidents to Article 2 cases in medical and care settings, in custody, and multi-death inquests such as the 7/7 London Bombings (2005). Members acted as counsel to the Inquest Touching Upon the Death of Ellie Butler in 2018.

Our members have also been instructed in high-profile public inquiries, including those arising out of inquests such as the Azelle Rodney Inquiry (2010-2013), as well as the ongoing Undercover Policing Inquiry and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA), the Al Sweady Inquiry (2010-2014), and the Chilcot Inquiry/Iraq War Inquiry (2015).

We have experience in representing the range of interested parties in inquests, from family members of the deceased, to Government departments including the Home Office, as well as professionals and corporates.

The advocacy skills of our members, which have been honed in the most challenging cases conducted in the criminal courts, provide us with a marked advantage in inquisitorial proceedings.
