About Us

Inquest Representation ServiceInquest Representation Service provides legal services to members of the public, individuals, firms and organisations, and is a collaboration between a number of specialist barristers and specialist solicitors who have worked in inquest law for many years. Our inquest law barristers are regulated by the Bar Standards Board of England and Wales (BSB), while our inquest law solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) of England and Wales.
