Inquests and inquiries in Regional Bar
No5 Barristers Chambers covers a range of inquests work inside and outside of clinical contexts. Bernard Thorogood is frequently instructed in inquests arising from his health and safety practice, such as his recent representation of Coventry City Council in an inquest following the death of a worker after the collapse of a stack of tyres. Richard Grimshaw has a practice that includes cases in custody and medical contexts.
Ropewalk Chambers' inquests team is instructed on a wide range of inquests touching upon issues such as care home deaths, murders and other offences committed by individuals released from prison on license, custody deaths and medical negligence matters. Richard Seabrook is particularly active in the field of care deaths, acting for a range of parties including care home operators and the families of the deceased, while Georgina Cursham has experience in health and safety related matters, having recently represented an infrastructure contractor following the death of a cyclist who hit a pot-hole.
