12 Wentworth Selborne Chambers has a strong core of barristers who practice in international commercial arbitration and who are experienced in conducting arbitrations using most major institutional rules as well as ad hoc arbitrations. Aside from appearing in locally seated arbitrations, a number of our barristers regularly appear in international seats such as London, Switzerland, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Members of Chambers have particular expertise in conducting arbitrations in areas such as construction, oil and gas, media rights, mining, maritime, insurance, and re-insurance and sports matters. A number of our barristers are English qualified and/or educated and have practiced extensively in London or other major arbitration hubs before being called to the Bar.
Our barristers have also appeared in many of the leading reported cases either resisting or enforcing awards in Australia.
Our arbitrators include former judges of the Federal Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of NSW together with experienced Senior Counsel and Junior Counsel. Those arbitrators are members of various arbitral panels including: the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC); the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS); the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC); the Thailand Arbitration Centre (THAC); the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (ACICA); Resolution Institute, Grade 1 Arbitrators; National Sports Tribunal; Supreme Court of NSW; District Court of NSW and Local Court of NSW.
Our arbitrators can also conduct arbitrations online and will work collaboratively with the parties and their legal representatives to ensure that protocols are put in place and procedural directions made to meet the particular needs of the dispute.
