Parklane Plowden’s Clinical Negligence Team “boasts outstanding capabilities in diverse clinical negligence claims” [Chambers & Partners, 2017]. We have the largest specialist team of clinical negligence and healthcare law practitioners on the North Eastern Circuit.
Many of the team are widely regarded as pre-eminent in their field and we are proud to be home to the majority of those ranked in the legal directories for the region. We provide a strong regional coverage from our premises in Leeds and Newcastle and attract national recognition for our expertise.
The team undertakes a wide range of clinical negligence, regulatory and disciplinary work - offering considerable experience and a proven track record in advocacy, mediation and advisory work. We work on behalf of: private individuals; large corporations; public bodies such as NHS trusts; medical defence organisations and private medical and related institutions.
Individual members are active in the Professional Negligence Bar Association [PNBA] Action against Medical Accidents [AvMA], The Leeds and District Medico-Legal Society and The North of England Medico-Legal Society.
We pride ourselves on both our commercial approach and commitment to client care. "The clerks give you results not problems. They bend over backwards; if they can do anything to facilitate the case then they'll do it." Chambers & Partners, 2018

Fees can be discussed prior to the commencement of work. 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.
All barristers will consider undertaking work on a CFA basis, where applicable. A robust management system ensures that agreed turn-around times are fulfilled.
