Nicholas Griffin QC has been interviewed by Legal Business as a prominent name in the field of public inquiries.
He notes that lawyers formally became involved in public inquiries as a spin-off from their normal areas of practice, such as medical negligence in an inquiry about contaminated blood. He adds, however, that 'Increasingly now you get a group of lawyers who have become inquiries specialists. You are now seeing the same big names reappearing on inquiries with very different subject matters.’ For further comments by Nicholas and the full article, see Watching the watchmen – at the sharp end with the lawyers on public inquiries (registration required).
