Parklane Plowden Chambers expands its Family Team

Parklane Plowden Chambers has begun the New Year with a newly strengthened Family Team. We're delighted to welcome seven new Barristers and Pupils to Chambers.

Each member joins with a wealth of experience in all areas of Family Law, adding further strength and depth to Chambers children and family finance offering for law firms and local authorities on the North Eastern Circuit.

Mark Williams, Senior Clerk/Practice Director of the Family Team said:  “With an ever increasing client base throughout the North East it’s been necessary to expand our quality team to meet the increase in instructions. We have plans to grow the team further during 2017 in order to support Chambers growth ambitions.”
