Domestic and International Arbitration
Members of Level Twenty Seven Chambers provide skilled advocacy and advice at every stage of domestic and international arbitrations including on applications to enforce and set aside arbitral awards.
Members undertake extensive work in hearings under domestic arbitration rules (including ACICA, CIArb, IAMA rules) and are also experienced in appearing in international arbitrations including matters in the LCIA, matters governed by ICC rules and in ad-hoc arbitrations in UNCITRAL model law jurisdictions.
Members of chambers are conversant in English law, and many members of chambers have obtained post-graduate qualifications and worked in overseas jurisdictions (including in England, the United States, South Korea and Japan). Combined with the geographical location of chambers, members are therefore well placed to provide outstanding representation in international commercial arbitrations throughout the Asia-Pacific region, including in Singapore and Hong Kong.
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.
- A dispute relating to the enforcement and the setting aside of a substantial arbitral award involving novel questions relating to the operation of UNCITRAL model law provisions (2 members acted).
