Hugh James represents bereaved relatives, employers and other interested authorities in inquests throughout England and Wales. We advise and represent our clients throughout the coroner’s court process.

Our experience includes the representation of hundreds of individuals and of numerous large-scale employers, local authorities, Welsh Government and the Health and Safety Executive. We are familiar with jury and Article II inquests.

Having acted in a number of inquests with particularly high public profile, we have significant experience in bringing challenges to inquest outcomes by way of appeal and judicial review.
