The North East has a rich industrial heritage which has given rise to a breadth of industrial disease cases spanning decades. As a result, our industrial disease barristers have developed in inimitable understanding of these often legally and factually complex cases.
Parklane Plowden Chambers is home to a number of highly-regarded practitioners in this field, some of whom have been involved in authority cases including: Ali v Courtaulds  LLR Medical 301; Malone v Reylon Heating Engineering Ltd  EWCA Civ 904 and Cressy v (1) E Timms & Sons Ltd and (2) E Timms & Sons Holdings Ltd  EWCA.
Several of our barristers have been involved in large-scale group litigation, acting for both claimants and defendants. Members of the team also act as independent assessors for mesothelioma compensation schemes.
Working for both Claimant and Defendant clients the team deliver an effective and, where necessary, robust advice and advocacy service on a range of industrial disease cases.
The team is experienced in relation to mesothelioma and other asbestos-related injuries, injuries caused by exposure to excessive vibration, noise-induced hearing loss, occupational asthma and other conditions caused by/in the working environment.
