Lisa Roberts QC instructed in the Covid Inquiry by the Health and Safety Executive.

The HSE were keen to instruct Lisa at an early stage, based on her long-standing reputation as a leader in the field of health and safety. Lisa is top tier (Band 1) recommended in Chambers & Partners 2022 for health and safety on both the Northern and the North Eastern Circuits. She is described by her instructing solicitors as, “A formidable advocate in prosecution and defence.” And, “She is a very classy operator – very authoritative and a really persuasive advocate.” “One of the most prominent leading silks in the North. She’s easy to work with, a team player and she stands out thanks to her strategic thinking.” – Chambers & Partners, 2022 – Health and Safety.

Lisa said, “I am delighted to be representing a national organisation in what will undoubtedly be a challenging but fascinating Inquiry. I have devoted much of the last 18 months to representing the North West Ambulance Service in the Manchester Arena Inquiry and so I am well-used to the rigour and pressure that such Inquiries bring.”
