The Grenfell Tower Inquiry
The Inquiry will investigate whether public bodies and other non-state institutions or organisations in Britain and internationally have contributed to the needless loss of life and injury that occurred on the 14 June 2017 and the days that followed.
Howe + Co represent a large number of persons affected by the fire, to determine what events led up to the fire, what events occurred during the fire and what happened after the fire was dealt with.
Howe + Co will continue to seek to ensure other Core Participants are able to have their account told and give their contribution. We will further assist in not just obtaining accountability against the perpetrators but also compensation for the victims of this terrible tragedy.

The Infected Blood Inquiry
The Inquiry will investigate the circumstances in which men, women and children treated by national Health Services in the United Kingdom (collectively, the “NHS”) were given infected blood and infected blood products, in particular since 1970.
It will also acertain as far as practicable, the likely numbers of people who have been infected (directly or indirectly) and examine whether, in addition to the HIV, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis B (“HCV” and “HBV”) viruses with which it is known that people were infected, people may have been exposed to the risk of other diseases (such as vCJD) in consequence of the use of infected blood or infected blood products.

The Inquiry’s purpose is to investigate and report on undercover police operations conducted by English and Welsh police forces in England and Wales since 1968. The Inquiry will examine the contribution undercover policing has made to tackling crime, how it was and is supervised and regulated, and its effect on individuals involved – both police officers and others who came into contact with them.
