Inquests and inquiries in Regional Bar

30 Park Place Chambers

30 Park Place Chambers is home to Lloyd Williams QC and Christian Howells, who appear in a wide range of inquests as well as high-profile national inquiries. The pair represent hundreds of victims from Wales and Northern Ireland in the Infected Blood Inquiry, and also act for Cardiff City Football Club in inquest into the death of Emiliano Sala, a new signing for the club who died in an air crash off Alderney in January 2019.

Civitas Law

Members of Civitas Law handle inquests and inquiries acting on behalf of various UK and Welsh government bodies, including police forces. In one matter, the Welsh Government instructed Richard Cole as lead for an inquest into eight historic deaths of care home residents in the Gwent Valleys.
