Welsh barrister David Crowley has joined 30 Park Place chambers.

David was called to the Bar in 2017 to pursue his advocacy ambitions in family and childcare law. He previously qualified as a solicitor in 2009, working in the family team in a well-known local law firm, and in 2015, joined a local authority in Wales where he continued to work in the childcare department.

Since qualification as a solicitor, David has appeared as an advocate in a range of tribunals within family proceedings.

Today’s news follows a flurry of recent tenancy appointments for the Cardiff based national set, including the recent return of Ffion Tomos, who has returned from her role as prosecutor in the Cayman Islands.

In June 2022, Tabitha Walker joined the independent Bar as a member of the Criminal Team following her in-house role at the CPS and Neil Rees joined chambers’ Civil Team following the completion of his probationary tenancy. Neil recently transferred to the Bar after practising as a Solicitor for 12 years.

30 Park Place has also announced that its two pupils, Talia Keskin and Jac Brown, confirmed their full tenancy this month, following the confirmation that former pupils Cat Jones and Sophie Keegan were offered tenancy in January 2022.

It’s the people that make the place

30 Park Place – named ‘Chambers of the Year’ at the Wales Legal Awards 2022 – has an enviable reputation for delivering outstanding career opportunities for its members, supported by a proactive, engaging and development-focused clerking team.

30 Park Place continues to dominate the Welsh Bar, and is on a campaign to recruit barristers looking to benefit from its position as a ‘gateway to legal work in Wales’ as well as its ability to represent on high profile, high value work across England.

Its recruitment brochure and video interview with counsel highlight the benefits of the collaborative, collegiate approach in chambers as well as the positive impact that its significant profile and client base offers members.
