Parklane Plowden welcomes eight new barristers in Leeds

Parklane Plowden Chambers has significantly boosted its expertise with the addition of eight Chancery and commercial barristers from St Philips Chambers in Leeds.

The barristers have moved to Parklane Plowden over the past few months, and have recently been joined by clerks Stephen Render and Claire Shephard.

Barristers Sarah Harrison, Sean Kelly, Marisa Lloyd, Stuart Roberts, Peter Cherry, Jonathan Gale, Anna Metcalfe and Cait Sweeney have joined Parklane Plowden. Their areas of expertise include probate, inheritance and trusts, property, intellectual property, and business and commercial law.

Harrison, the most senior of the new additions, said: “The opportunities arising from the new Business and Property Courts in Leeds and Newcastle means that Parklane Plowden Chambers is a natural fit because of its dual-base in both cities.”

Head of chambers at Parklane Plowden, Christopher Williams, said: “Our absolute focus on what’s happening in the legal market, and willingness to make timely and strategic business decisions that are good for chambers and its members, has enabled us to attract this highly reputable team of barristers and clerks. We’re absolutely delighted that they chose to join us and look forward to developing the team and work further.”
