This set, the oldest in Sydney, houses barristers with expertise ranging across the full commercial and public law spectrum and experience extending to the highest level in both Commonwealth courts and, on a pan-Australian basis, individual state courts. Within this varied offering, the set fields particularly noteworthy expertise in the administrative law, banking, construction, equity and intellectual property spheres and is also well regarded for its capabilities in the media and defamation spaces. Several interviewees echo one source's observation that 5 Wentworth is "generally known as a great IP floor," one opining that it is "among the strongest in Sydney" in that respect, and it is further characterised more generally as "a collegiate and effective set of barristers." Clerk to chambers Trish Hoff is the recommended contact.
