Inquests & Inquiries
Parklane Plowden 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.
