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, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Our barristers have particular expertise in conducting arbitrations in areas such as construction, oil and gas, mining, maritime, insurance, and re-insurance 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.
Members of 12 Wentworth Selborne Chambers regularly travel to Singapore and other destinations to present at arbitration and mediation conferences. Most recently in December 2016, our Chambers, in conjunction with the ICC (International Chamber of Commerce), and law firms Stephenson Harwood and Latham & Watkins, conducted its second annual one day International Arbitration Masterclass in Singapore.
Our barristers accept appointments as arbitrators both domestically and internationally. A number of our barristers have been appointed to the NSW Bar Association's approved list of arbitrators, as well as the Supreme Court and District Court's Panel of Arbitrators.
