Global
Dispute Resolution: The Bar - Australia

Star Individuals

Bret Walker SC continues to be heaped with superlatives by interviewees who variously maintain that he is "the leader of the Australian Bar," "the leading appellate advocate in the country" or "without question the best orator at the Bar, with daylight second." Sources further cite his "stunningly good capacity to present a case at a level of broad principles, but with every single detail in his head," and "unparalleled ability to make an unattractive position sound persuasive." Active across a remarkably broad range of practice areas, and seen as potentially likely to turn up on any matter of clear significance, he is referred to by one interviewee as "the inevitable Bret."
