As β€˜a go-to set for health and safety and inquest work’, Crown Office Chambers’ β€˜incredibly strong team’ is active in high-profile cases. Multiple members of the set are involved in the Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry; and individuals including John Cooper QC, James Ageros QC, new silk Simon Antrobus QC and Dominic Kay QC are instructed to advise on the Didcot Power Station collapse.

Henderson Chambers is a β€˜heavyweight for health and safety cases’ that is β€˜strong at silk and junior levels’ thanks to a β€˜team of incredibly talented barristers’ including Prashant Popat QC, Charles Gibson QC and Oliver Campbell QC. Noteworthy instructions include handling the Hanover Square window frame collapse manslaughter prosecution, advising on the Star Wars prosecution relating to on-set injuries, and advising on the Grenfell Tower disaster.

Six Pump Court’s β€˜wealth of talented individuals’ are β€˜undoubtedly impressive in the field with substantial strength in depth at all levels’. Headline instructions saw Stephen Hockman QC in a prosecution arising from an escape of Butane gas at an oil refinery and David Travers QC defending a company following the collapse of a balcony in Knightsbridge that killed two workers.

Temple Garden Chambers is β€˜always on the list of sets to approach with health and safety work’ due to its β€˜exceptional members’, including Keith Morton QC and Dominic Adamson. Recent mandates include representing Tata Steel in a successful appeal against a fine imposed on the company following worker injuries.

2 Hare Court β€˜continues to build its regulatory practice and grows its reputation’ with members handling corporate manslaughter investigations, serious injury issues and non-fatal accidents. A recent example includes Jonathan Laidlaw QC acting for Hugo Boss in a fatality case.
