Public Inquiries are governed by the Inquiries Act 2005 and the Inquiry Rules 2006. A particular feature of this area of practice is that an Inquiry Chair will often hold a very wide discretion in matters of procedure and evidence. Members of the Landmark team have expertise in advising on the various types of legal issues which flow from the statutory and procedural framework, which is unique to this area of practice.
In addition to the representation of parties within public inquiries, members of chambers regularly advise and assist prospective core participants who wish to apply to participate in public inquiries.
Members of Chambers also provide practical solutions and advice to institutions involved in public inquiries on a wide range of issues, including responses to Rule 9 requests, disclosure and confidentiality obligations.
In addition to representing core participants and witnesses, Landmark Counsel has acted as Counsel to the Inquiry (‘CTI’), instructed by solicitors acting for the sponsoring government department.
