Two barristers accept offers of residency at Parklane Plowden in Leeds

Two new barristers have accepted an offer of tenancy at Parklane Plowden Chambers after successfully completing their pupillages.

Holly Challenger and May Martin have joined chambers as tenants, having initially been called in 2019, and will sit within the chancery and commercial and personal injury and clinical negligence practice areas, respectively. 

Martin, a specialist civil law practitioner with a particular focus on employment, personal injury, and clinical negligence, commenced her pupillage in October 2020 under the supervision of Stuart Jamieson and Andrew Sugarman.

Parklane Plowden’s personal injury and clinical negligence practice director, John Hammond, said: “I am very pleased that May has accepted the offer of tenancy with chambers. Her pupillage has allowed her to gain exposure to all aspects of personal injury and clinical negligence practice, and this experience will only benefit the set and our clients.”

Challenger joins as a tenant after completing her chancery and commercial law pupillage at Parklane Plowden under the supervision of Sarah Harrison. 

Also called in 2019, Challenger has experience dealing with chancery and commercial company disputes, having regularly been instructed in cases involving wills, probate, inheritance, real property, breach of contract and/or misrepresentation, and regularly represents petitioners seeking winding up orders for companies.

Commenting on Challenger’s tenancy, Parklane Plowden’s chancery and commercial practice director, Stephen Render, said: “Holly is a highly knowledgeable practitioner, having been instructed on both contentious and non-contentious private client matters.”

“She will further strengthen the chancery and commercial expertise that we can offer clients across the North Eastern Circuit and beyond.”
