Bret Walker SC is a "standout leading silk" and "brilliant appellate lawyer," rated "the best High Court advocate in Australia" by one interviewee and cited by several for "the really quite beautiful way he articulates propositions," tailored both to the mood of the court and the key concerns of the judge. Tributes are also paid to his "very acute mind" and "extraordinary photographic memory," applied to key mandates across the litigation spectrum, particularly in the administrative law, anti-bribery and corruption and media spheres.
