Over many years Ian has gathered extensive experience appearing for interested parties at Inquests across the country ranging from those dealing with deaths arising out of an RTA to lengthy Inquests involving death in custody in which article 2 of the Human Rights Act is invoked.
As a former solicitor Ian embraces Cobden House Chambers’ ethos that members are happy to discuss cases over the telephone or by email on an informal basis often without the need for formal instructions. He recognises that an ongoing relationship between solicitor and counsel is crucial to the effective presentation of a case. He also understands the pressures that solicitors work under and undertakes to turn round written work quickly.
