About 3 St James' Hall

3 St James’ Hall Chambers was established in 1997, by a group of young barristers under the leadership of Ian Temby AO QC.

The Floor’s 19 barristers enjoy a strong reputation in commercial, corporations, insolvency, building and construction law, inquiries, crime and public law. A number of former members have been appointed to judicial office.

Now falling within a range of different levels of seniority, our barristers regularly appear in all appellate jurisdictions and in a number of different courts and tribunals.

More details about individual barrister’s areas of expertise are available under their individual profiles or by contacting the Floor’s Clerk.

Our barristers deliver outstanding advocacy and legal advice of the highest standard in their respective fields. They do so on instructions from law firms, both large and small, from all parts of Australia as well as both state and commonwealth instrumentalities. A number of our barristers also accept instructions from in-house counsel. Members of the floor provide a service that is comprehensive, skilled, strategic and expeditious. At the same time, we strive to be both approachable and practical.

Enquiries regarding barristers’ availability and rates should be directed to our Clerk.
