About Us

During the current restrictions, access to our physical mediation rooms is limited. However, the essential work of mediations, arbitrations and expert determinations continue online and by telephone. Our barristers are experienced in hosting and participating in these processes. 12 Wentworth Selborne Chambers can help you tackle the challenges of virtual dispute resolution. Our clerk, Trish Hoff, can assist you in getting in contact with counsel, or providing electronic or hard copy material to them. Trish can be contacted on clerk@12thfloor.com.au.


12 Wentworth Selborne Chambers is at the forefront in the provision of private means of alternative dispute resolution, in particular by mediation, arbitration and expert determination. These processes can, in appropriate cases, provide parties with a cost-effective, confidential and timely resolution to disputes.

It has had its own suite of purpose-built mediation and arbitration rooms for over 10 years, one of the first chambers in Sydney to do so and the only set within the Wentworth Selborne Chambers complex to have such a facility.

Members of Chambers regularly appear at mediations and arbitrations including at mediations conducted online.

Our mediators, arbitrators and expert determiners include former judges of the Federal Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of NSW together with experienced Senior Counsel and Junior Counsel.

Our mediatiors have experience in "hosting" or conducting on-line mediations using any platform that the parties choose and, in particular, Zoom and Cisco Webex.
