Parklane Plowden appoints new chairman

Parklane Plowden Chambers has appointed David Kilduff as its new chairman.

Kilduff’s appointment follows the retirement of former Eversheds partner Geoff Harrison, who has held the position since 2015.

A nationally recognised leader in the field of public sector commercial law, Kilduff was previously head of the commercial group and latterly the energy, infrastructure and government group at Walker Morris. He maintains a leading role in the firm’s energy group.

In his new role as chairman, Kilduff brings his experience and expertise to the management of Parklane Plowden and the setting of its business and marketing strategies.

On his appointment, Kilduff (pictured) said: “I’m delighted to be joining such a pre-eminent set. Parklane Plowden is an ambitious and exciting environment. It has grown significantly over the past few years and I look forward to helping Parklane Plowden address the many opportunities and challenges which will shape its future success.”

Christopher Williams, head of chambers, said: “We are thrilled to welcome David to the team and excited to be working with him to build on Geoff’s legacy of success through solid business management.”

Parklane Plowden has 120 members who practise across civil, family, employment and chancery and commercial.

The chambers undertook a significant recruitment drive earlier this year, securing the arrival of four specialist injury law barristers from Zenith Chambers, as well as 13 family law barristers and pupils.
