Parklane Plowden’s team of business and property specialists prides itself on providing commercially astute and client-focused advice, backed up by confident and incisive advocacy.
The opening of a Business and Property Court in Leeds (October 2017) and the appointment of former member, Judge Philip Kramer, as Newcastle’s first full time chancery and business judge (December 2017), means our barristers are well placed to service the needs of clients.
Collectively, our barristers have extensive experience in all key areas of commercial and chancery litigation; with particular emphasis on contractual and property disputes. Offering both strength and depth, we undertake work at all levels and in all principle disciplines; from boundary disputes and possession proceedings, to shareholder disputes and high-value commercial litigation.
Our team includes qualified mediators and those authorised to accept public access instructions; as well as a number of members who are able to bring to bear their knowledge and experience from other disciplines.
Uniquely, we have premises in both regional centres of the Business and Property Court in the North East, Leeds and Newcastle, providing valuable insight into the regional Court Service and judiciary. We are also one of only a handful of sets who have specialist barristers working in this field.
Our clients range from individuals and professionals on the one hand, through to SMEs and partnerships We also advise and represent major corporations and government departments. We believe that the secret of our success is our ability to provide a prompt, flexible and cost-effective response to instructions; a realistic and commercial approach to advice; and if necessary, a confident and well prepared presence in the Courtroom.
