Dispute Resolution: The Bar - Australia

Band 1

Shane Doyle QC continues to be seen by many as "the most eminent Queensland silk," one interviewee going so far as to number him among "the top five barristers in Australia," and adding: "His reputation and performance put him in that handful of the best." He operates across the greater part of the disputes spectrum, being as highly regarded in the construction and insolvency spheres as in the general commercial space. He is, for instance, described in a construction context as "probably the best advocate I have ever come across, commanding respect as soon as he enters the room." And in the insolvency field, he draws praise for his "superior intellect," an ability "to grasp complex legal and factual issues in a very short period of time," and "a quality of client service that is rare to see in barristers at his level."
