Our barristers are engaged by corporations and governments to provide specialist advocacy and advice in relation to cross-jurisdictional litigation, matters involving foreign law and foreign judgments, and public international law, including in the context of international arbitration. Their expertise includes the application of international law instruments, international tribunals and organisations, issues of jurisdiction and choice of law, and anti-suit injunctions and applications for proceedings to be stayed.
Several members bring the experience of having worked in jurisdictions overseas (including Abu Dhabi, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands), as well as a number who are dual-qualified to practise in England & Wales. Members have appeared in the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas (including multi-million dollar litigation relating to a dispute between the estate of Edward St George and his former business partner Sir Jack Hayward), before the Court of Appeal in the Solomon Islands, before specialist arbitrations at the ICC in Paris, and participated in proceedings in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS/TAS) in Lausanne.
Given their expertise, barristers of Level Twenty Seven Chambers are invited to speak and write papers on international litigation and arbitration, especially from an Australian perspective.
Level Twenty Seven Chambers’ Practice Management is led by professionals with detailed experience of working in international barristers’ chambers. As such, they appreciate the differing needs of international clients and provide appropriate counsel appraisals.
