Parklane Plowden appoints four injury specialists following Zenith closure

Four specialist injury law barristers have joined Parklane Plowden Chambers.

Justin Crossley, Bronia Hartley, Colin Richmond and Peter Yates, who are all former members of Zenith Chambers, will undertake personal injury and clinical negligence work. They bring with them considerable expertise and a well-established client following.

Their arrival brings the number of specialist injury law barristers working out of Parklane Plowden to more than 60. It also means that with 120 barristers, the chambers is now the 11th largest in the UK, according to Chambers & Partners.

Michael Stubbs, director of clerking and business development at Parklane Plowden, said: “We are thrilled to welcome such highly regarded and talented barristers to our team. These new additions enhance and further strengthen our injury law to clients from across the region and beyond.”

Leeds-based Zenith Chambers closed its doors on 28 February after 60 years in operation.

Thirteen family law barristers and pupils moved to Parklane from Zenith Chambers last month, while Leeds- and Bradford-based Broadway House Chambers welcomed 10 from the now-closed chambers in January.

Exchange Chambers expanded in Leeds with the addition of Simon Ross as a new member. He joined from Zenith Chambers, where he was head of the personal injury group.
