List G Barristers offer an international legal service in every sense. The flexible structure and commercial approach of List G Barristers means we are well positioned to offer efficient and intelligent clerking services and can meet the particular challenges of international litigation. We welcome direct briefing and instruction from in-house counsel with international corporations and international law firms alike.
We certainly have the appropriate skill-base. A number of our highly skilled advocates are admitted and appear in overseas jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom and the Asia Pacific region. In addition, all of our members are able to, and frequently do, appear in any of the states and territories in Australia.
Many of our members specialise in cross-border commercial litigation and international commercial arbitration and are well-versed in the complex legal issues arising in these areas. They can therefore offer informed and practical advice and representation in any domestic disputes involving a cross-border element. In our experience, making contact with a well-regarded practitioner with local knowledge early in a proceeding can be a wise investment.
Probably the most difficult aspect of briefing or instructing from a jurisdiction outside of Australia is selecting the appropriate local barrister for your matter. This is where the expertise of List G Barristers' Clerking team, led by CEO and Senior Clerk, Jane King, is indispensible. With her years of commercial legal experience she is able to offer intelligent advice and point international instructors in the right direction.
Once a member of List G Barristers has been retained, our office staff will administer all fees and bookings and our IT systems and office infrastructure mean all clients and instructors are well supported. Contact a member of our Clerking team for further information about administration or engagement of List G Barristers with international expertise.
