The applicant Local Authority’s witnesses gave their evidence from the Remote Connection Suite here at Cornwall Street Barristers with our counsel Raymond Plunkett representing the respondent-mother.

Cornwall Street staff were on hand in Chambers to offer full technical support and ensured that everything went seamlessly from the moment the witnesses arrived right through to arranging video links and coordinating the relevant platforms.

Sandwell Local Authority was very appreciative of the availability of the resource and through its counsel, Mr. Lawrence Messling of 3 PB, expressed its thanks to Cornwall Street Barristers in court before Mr. Justice Keehan.

Cornwall Street Barristers is dedicated to assisting the courts in reducing the backlog of cases and believes that utilising resources such as our Remote Connection Suites for hybrid hearings and conferences is part of the solution. We are fully equipped to assist with the set up of all video link platforms such as Zoom and Skype.
