The commercial equity practice of the barristers of Level Twenty Seven Chambers is one of the group’s core strengths.
Members advise and appear in all types of trusts disputes, disputes arising from fiduciary obligations in the traditional equitable context and the related sphere of statutory obligations in the corporate context. A number of our members regularly present to solicitors’ firms, corporate clients and at conferences on developments in the law of equity.
Barristers in Chambers have, for a number of years, taught equity to undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Queensland and the Queensland University of Technology. Members combine a detailed technical knowledge of commercial equity with the forensic skills necessary for the effective conduct of litigation in this area.
Members have appeared in a number of leading commercial equity cases, including:
- Equititrust Limited v Tucker and Others  QC 51 which considered whether the form of security for costs should be ordered in the form of a deed of indemnity from a London-based insurer instead of by way of the usual bank guarantee or cash payment into Court; and
- The decision on the constructive trust and equitable compensation remedies in Canehire Pty Ltd v Themis Holdings Pty Ltd  QCA 296.
