Parklane Plowden was formed on 1st October 2007 following the merger of Park Lane Chambers (Leeds) and Plowden Chambers (Newcastle).
The Members specialise in eight key practice areas: Personal Injury; Clinical Negligence; Family; Employment; Chancery & Commercial; Court of Protection; Insurance (Credit Hire and Motor Fraud); and Litigation Costs and Funding. 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 digital technology. This affords our clients full access to members of chambers.
We are proud to have earned ISO 9001, and the Quality Mark for the Bar until its disbandment in 2012.
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.
Equality & Diversity
Parklane Plowden Chambers is commited to equality and diversity.
We do not discriminate against clients, members, pupils, staff or during recruitment on grounds of gender, race, sexual orientation, age, disability or religion.
Meetings, seminars or events, will always be held in chambers or a third party venue which complies with the Equality Act 2010 and we encourage attendance by those with disabilities.
In line with the Bar Standard Board's new Equality and Diversity rules of the Code of Conduct, we hereby publish a summary of Diversity Data as at 31st December 2012.
