Our Team at Preston Law acts for local governments, statutory bodies, government-owned corporations and other entities who may have an interest in an inquest, whether before the Coroner’s Court or other jurisdiction of enquiry.
The unique nature of inquests means that as well as preparing for the inquest itself, participants in inquests need to understand how to implement the recommendations that arise from them. We have assisted government entities with foreshadowing, understanding and implementing the recommendations identified by inquests, reducing risk and enhancing processes in the future.
- providing advice in relation to pre-inquest conferences;
- preparing briefs and submissions for coronial inquests;
- appearing on behalf of clients at inquests;
- assisting clients in implementing recommendations made at inquests.
