The 2020 Chambers & Partners Global rankings have been released with Cooper Grace Ward’s Dispute Resolution group ranked amongst the leading law firms and lawyers from Australia.
Chambers Global cited the Dispute Resolution group as a ‘respected Brisbane practice’ that is ‘active on behalf of several of Australia’s leading companies across a broad range of disputes.’
Lead Dispute Resolution Partner, Rocco Russo, was individually ranked as a leading individual in Dispute Resolution for the seventh consecutive year. Rocco’s Band 4 ranking makes him the highest ranked Brisbane-based lawyer.
Chambers Global noted for 2020 that ‘in addition to mandates affecting major players in the consumer goods, financial services and technology industries, the team is increasingly active on behalf of high net worth and other publicly prominent individuals, and often also of their associated family trusts. It is also well known for advising clients on their interaction with official commissions of inquiry.’
Chambers & Partners is widely regarded as the most prestigious legal ranking directory in the world, with a team of 200+ researchers based in London. Rankings are determined through research undertaken independent researchers who undertake in-depth interviews of clients and peers and assess recent engagements.
