Inquests Grandstand Event | 15 September 2022


Parklane Plowden's Inquests Grandstand Event featuring guest speaker Deputy Chief Coroner, Derek Winter, is scheduled on the 15th September 2022. This is a hybrid event, so you can register to attend online or in-person at the Vermont Hotel in Newcastle.

This event provides seminars covering a range of topics and updates led by Parklane Plowden Chambers' team of Inquests specialists. A downloadable delegate pack will be made available to attendees prior to the event. The pack will include a case law update provided by Abigail Telford and Megan Crowther.

Our 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.

This event is being delivered alongside the newly founded PLP Foundation, created to support local charities and social causes. We invite attendees to make voluntary donations, which will be donated to Children North East and the Charlie Waller Trust on behalf of the PLP Foundation.
