Domestic and International Arbitration
Members of Level Twenty Seven Chambers regularly represent domestic and international clients in large-scale arbitrations, locally and overseas.
As advocates and advisors, members are able to provide skilled assistance at every stage of arbitrations, from preliminary advice through to hearings and appeals.
Members undertake extensive work in hearings under domestic arbitration rules (including ACICA, CIArb, IAMA rules) and are also experienced in appearing in matters in the LCIA and in international matters governed by ICC rules (including ad-hoc arbitrations and matters where the seat of the arbitration is outside Australia).
A number of members have other chambers located interstate and overseas and members enjoy an advantageous geographical location to represent clients in international arbitrations in locations such as Hong Kong and Singapore.
Significant recent matters in which members have acted include:
- A cross-jurisdictional dispute concerning the construction of a pipeline involving a claim for over $100 million
- A three month arbitration between a principal and contractor in relation to the construction of one of the largest infrastructure projects in Queensland (3 members acted).
- A large scale dispute over user fees for one of Australia’s largest export coal ports (3 members acted). The dispute was ultimately compromised.
