12 Wentworth Selborne Chambers is one of the leading sets of barristers’ chambers in New South Wales, with over 60 members including 16 Queen’s Counsel and Senior Counsel.
Our barristers practise nationally and internationally in a broad range of areas and jurisdictions. They have the expertise and experience to appear in and advise on a wide range of matters in a manner that is both results driven and cost-effective. The contemporary values of our Chambers are demonstrated in its barristers, who joined our Chambers from a diverse range of backgrounds. Our Floor maintains a distinct commitment to gender equality that is reflected in its female membership.
Our Chambers also recognises the importance of alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediation. We have modern sound insulated mediation facilities with Wi-Fi capabilities that are available to conduct mediations free of charge for parties who retain our barristers as counsel or as a mediator. Members of chambers are accredited as mediators under the National Mediation Accreditation System and by Resolution Institute (formerly LEADR/IAMA) as advanced mediators. For further information please visit our Dispute Resolution website.
