CommBar barristers shine in the courtroom. But that’s not their only focus.
Early advice and skilful negotiations can obviate the need for costly litigation and, in consultation with our clients, we weigh up all considerations before advising on a course of action which involves litigation.
A significant number of our barristers specialise in arbitration and alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
Arbitration is widely accepted as an alternative form of resolving commercial disputes, particularly in the context of international commercial transactions. Our barristers recognise the growing importance of international arbitration in the Asia Pacific region.
Our barristers have expertise acting for clients in domestic and international commercial arbitrations with many approved as arbitrators with national and international bodies.
Our barristers have substantial experience in other forms of ADR, including mediation, expert determination and hybrid dispute resolution processes.
