Chambers and Partners has ranked List A Barristers in Band 1 (the highest ranking). List A Barristers was the only List in Australia to be ranked in Band 1. Chambers and Partners described List A Barristers as follows: This Melbourne list, run from offices in Owen Dixon Chambers, is highlighted for taking on hardcore, high-level commercial litigation and is regularly reported by interviewees to be one of the most prestigious in Victoria, one interviewee describing it as “clearly dominant.” This judgement is supported by the list’s standout position in these rankings, it having more barristers ranked – and mostly in the higher bands – than any competitor. Its more than 140 members, who advise and advocate on issues arising in Australian and many foreign jurisdictions, include two stars of the Victorian Bar and many other highly regarded advocates offering cutting-edge expertise in, among others, the competition, construction, insolvency and intellectual property arenas. Senior clerk David Andrews is a key contact.
List A thanks all of its members and the staff of its clerking office for their hard work and dedication which has resulted in List A receiving this recognition.
