The Legal 500 Leading Set of Chambers

Alinea Chambers is pleased to announce that it has been recognised in The Legal 500 Asia Pacific guide for 2022 as a leading set of chambers for commercial disputes in Australia, building on its listing in 2021. In addition, every floor member was individually ranked as a leading silk, leading junior or rising star in commercial disputes. 

The Legal 500 commented:

Alinea Chambers has continued to grow its profile since its formation in 2019, and is known for its commitment to technology, innovation, and progressive working practices, as well as its prioritisation of gender balance. Members regularly appear in high profile commercial disputes involving equity, property law, financial services, and large-scale class actions, as well as Royal Commissions of Inquiry and regulatory investigations. 

Michael Henry SC‘s extensive experience covers areas ranging from  companies and contract law to insurance, construction and insolvency law. Anthony McGrath SC appeared in the high-profile Kraft Foods vs Bega Cheese case before the High Court, defending Bega in an appeal by Kraft against the Federal Court’s ruling that Bega held the rights to its unique yellow packaging. Melanie Cairns represented Woolworths in Gazcorp Pty Ltd v Woolworths Group Limited, appearing unled in a dispute with a developer on whether an agreement for a lease (AFL) provides an equitable interest in property, allegations of frustration, abandonment and conventional estoppel.”

The barristers of Alinea Chambers thank their clients and colleagues for their continued trust and support.
