Inquests & Public Inquiries

Peter has considerable experience in dealing with inquests into deaths in healthcare and cases involving workplace accidents. He has acted at inquests for families of the bereaved, employers and individual professional workers. He has dealt with a wide range of cases, including those involving the death of a sectioned patient and the death of a pupil on a school trip.

The experience he gained from previously working as a clinical negligence solicitor, and as a legal adviser to a leading teaching trade union, has equipped him with sensitive client care skills and invaluable insight into workplace environments and the working lives of busy professionals.

His notable inquest cases over the last two years have included representing a doctor at an inquest into the death of a resident at a care home and acting for a GP at an inquest into the death of Amber Peat, a teenage school child who tragically hung herself.

He has also acted as counsel on two major independent inquiries into homicides committed by patients with mental health problems.
