Chambers is home to a highly respected team of specialist inquest and public inquiry barristers. Our barristers have a strong working knowledge of coronial law and the ability to give these cases the careful handling they require.
Parklane Plowden barristers have substantial experience of representing a broad range of interested persons at inquests and public inquiries. They have a proven track record of handling complex and high-profile cases concerning deaths arising in a variety of circumstances and settings. From deaths in custody, to those arising in care homes and other institutions, the wealth of expertise available to bereaved families and corporate bodies is second to none.
Feelings are often highly-charged at Coroner’s inquests and our barristers are sensitive to the anxiety caused by these proceedings. Outstanding court advocacy skills and sensitive handling of witnesses both in and out of court means that our team are in demand.
Chambers has been involved in many high-profile inquests and we are adept at handling media interest in cases.
We offer continuity of representation from inquests through to any civil actions for damages arising post-inquest. This helps foster strong barrister-client relations to ensure the best possible outcome.
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.
