Parklane Plowden is leading the way as the ‘next generation’ of chambers. In February 2015, Chambers underwent a radical and unique restructure to secure our position as the leading civil set on the North Eastern Circuit and to deliver on our ambitious growth plans.

One outcome of the restructure has been to place an emphasis on nurturing internal talent. An intensive training/knowledge sharing programme is in place, which enables junior member of Chambers to learn and develop more quickly, giving clients an even broader choice of counsel.
