A smaller chambers, with just under 30 barristers, Eight Selborne nevertheless enjoys a reputation as a notably strong floor in Sydney and the home of senior counsel with impressive track records across the commercial spectrum and particularly noted expertise in the financial services and insolvency spaces. Sally Flynn is the chambers clerk and first point of contact for enquiries.

Ian Jackman SC continues to be seen as a particularly "formidable opponent" to encounter at the Sydney Bar, being both "a very effective advocate and a tough cross-examiner." His work in the insolvency space forms a particularly significant component of his work, several interviewees identifying him as a key player in this field; one source numbers him among "the top four practitioners" and notes that he is particularly likely to be seen on matters involving "large schemes of arrangement or corporate restructurings." His wider breadth of practice is also praised, and he receives commendations for his work across the general commercial, financial services, insurance, intellectual property and taxation spheres.

Jeremy Stoljar SC draws praise as "a highly respected commercial law counsel" who combines a "clear, sharp and insightful" approach to his work with "user-friendly and client-focused" responsiveness. Active on both general commercial issues and matters arising from the financial services and insolvency spheres, he also offers extensive class action and commission of inquiry experience.
