Welcome to Parklane Plowden headed by Andrew Axon. We are a specialist set of Chambers, comprising over eighty members, making us one of the largest sets in the North.
The Members specialise in four key practice areas: Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence; Family; Employment and Chancery & Commercial. We hope you find our website both informative and of assistance to you seeking professional advice and advocacy within our core areas of practice.
Parklane Plowden barristers have a reputation for being client focussed, approachable, innovative and commercially minded and have proven themselves to be strong adversaries.
Our reputation as the North East's Leading set has been recognised by many legal publications.
We operate an open communications policy using the latest email and voicemail technology. This affords our clients full access to members of chambers.
We are proud to have earned both Quality Mark for the Bar and ISO 9001. This illustrates that client care is at the forefront of our quality policy. Excellence is demonstrated by unsolicited testimonials in professional guides and continued growth in our client base.
Value for money is assured as fees for each case can be assessed individually and are based upon the complexity and value of the case, seniority of counsel and time spent in preparation. Fees can be agreed at the outset with one of our clerks.
