Since joining chambers, Lukas Hamilton Eddy has steadily developed a diverse and busy regulatory practice.
This has included acting as junior counsel during the course of a three-week health and safety trial concerning the prosecution of a haulage company, following the death of an employee.
He receives instructions from a wide range of professional organisations, including the Police Federation and the Royal College of Nursing. Through the latter, he has represented the interests of nursing staff at the Coroner’s Court, most notably in a case where a nurse was implicated in contributing to the death of a patient in her care.
His regulatory defence practice also includes representing individuals facing confiscation proceedings by HMRC as well as by statutory bodies such as Historic England.
In addition to this, he has acted on behalf of government agencies such as The Pensions Regulator as well as local government throughout the midlands.
Beyond his court work, he has provided training to local government lawyers at in-house teaching seminars.
As a keen shooting sports enthusiast, he is familiar with all aspects of firearms law and welcomes enquiries from firearms or shotgun certificate holders.
