Royal Commission

Duxton Hill has specialist experience in representing persons and organisations in Royal Commission and other public inquiries.  

We have valuable insight into the procedures, hearings, evidence and standard of proof of such inquiries.

We safely steer our clients through the minefields that must be confronted when responding to demands for the production of documents and appearing to give evidence.

We also assist our clients to understand the use which can be made of their evidence in any future legal proceedings. We identify the issues likely to emerge, how to confront them, and how to reduce or negate the impact.

We have experience assisting persons and organisations in connection with the following Royal Commission:

  • 2000 Metropolitan Ambulance Service Royal Commission
  • 2005 Royal Commission of Inquiry into certain Australian companies in relation to the UN Oil-for-Food Programme (Cole Inquiry)
  • 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission
  • 2019 Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry
