Inquests & Public Inquiries

Laura is instructed in inquest proceedings, predominantly on behalf of healthcare practitioners. She represents doctors, nurses and care homes at inquests. Recent instructions include: acting on behalf of a doctor who performed an assessment on a patient shortly before the patient jumped from a multi-storey car park; representing a care home where a patient died with no DNAR in place and CPR was not performed; and acting for a nurse caring for a 7 year old child who died in a post-operative care.

Laura has experience of large-scale inquest and inquiry work. She is familiar with the issues that arise in lengthy cases involving vast amounts of evidence, including in the following cases:

Hillsborough Inquests – in 2012 the High Court ordered new inquests into to 96 deaths resulting from the Hillsborough Stadium Disaster. Laura worked with a team of Charles Russell Solicitors, instructed by the Football Association, for several months in 2013-14.

Independent Jersey Care Inquiry – the inquiry investigated the abuse of children in Jersey’s care system over several decades. Laura was instructed by an interested party to the Inquiry as junior disclosure counsel.
