Serious Case Reviews
Protecting the organisation and its reputation
We can conduct serious case reviews on either criminal or civil investigations. Our team of experts include highly experienced former detectives who will undertake a systematic and thorough review of every aspect of the investigation including forensic science. Their independent, impartial assessment will ensure that all lines of enquiry have been identified and explored.
Our experienced team at Chaucer Forbes have also recently completed a series of serious case reviews on behalf of UK Government departments with multi agencies across the UK relating to failures around neighbourhood justice.
At Chaucer Forbes our Serious Case Review Team would work with our client to:
- Establish whether there are lessons to be learned from the case about the way in which professionals and organisations work together.
- Identify clearly what those lessons are, how they will be acted on and what is expected to change as a result.
- As a consequence, improve inter-organisation and internal working.
- Complete all investigatory functions to a criminal standard of evidence.
Serious Case Reviews are enquiries into how something has happened and who was responsible; our experienced team assist clients navigate successfully through the Coroner's and Criminal Courts.
