About Us

The List G Barristers name is unrivalled in the areas of commercial and public law advocacy. Our members have been involved in some of Australia’s highest profile cases in these areas, many of which are regarded as legal and historical landmark decisions. We are committed to professional excellence and commercial acumen in corporate and commercial law, and to social justice and the protection of human rights and civil liberties in public law.

Governance

List G Barristers' members are proud to operate as a "list-owned" model.  This means that our barristers own and operate the List G Barristers clerking company (List G Pty Ltd) and associated clerking service.  We believe this ensures our clients receive excellence in service standards which are unrivalled at the Victorian Bar.  The List Committee of List G Barristers consists of nine elected members, including an internally appointed Chairperson, who collectively govern strategic direction.
