Karim + Nicol provide advice and representation to those involved in Coronial Inquests, or called as a witness in a Royal Commission. We provide advice about the consequences of your evidence, assist in the preparation of statements, and ensure your rights and privileges are protected.
The public nature of a Royal Commission can make the experience of giving evidence an arduous one. The reports and outcomes handed down are based on the evidence given, adding to the stress of witnesses. Our experienced team will ensure that your rights are protected and that you are adequately supported.
Our solicitors are presently available to provide advice and representation in the Royal Commission in Aged Care Quality and Safety and the Royal commission into Police use of Informers.
We also advise and appear for those summonsed to attend examinations at the NSW Crime Commission and other investigatory bodies including the Police Integrity Commission; and as tribunals such as the Mental Health Review Tribunal.
Our solicitors have experience representing those who find themselves involved in a Coronial Inquest, including family members, or people who have been notified by the Coroner’s Court that they are required to give evidence at an inquiry. We can provide you with advice about the consequences of your evidence and ensure your rights and privileges are preserved.
