About us

The 13th Floor St James Hall is a leading and established chamber based in the heart of Sydney’s legal precinct.

Our chambers include acknowledged experts within their specialist fields of practice including administrative law, commercial law, common law, crime, defamation, equity and trusts, succession, family law, native title and real property.

Our junior barristers have been selected for their outstanding potential.

Members enjoy a high reputation for specialist advice and a strong advocacy across all jurisdictions in Australia. We act as advocates, advisers, arbitrators and mediators. We accept briefs from solicitors across the country and from in-house legal departments. Some members accept briefs on a direct access basis. 

Our ethos is progressive, with our barristers exhibiting a rich diversity of experience, background and interests with a strong commitment to gender equality.
