In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, State Chambers has restricted access to Chambers to minimise exposure risk.
Our Barristers are working from Chambers or remotely, and are maintaining a business as usual approach, continuing to service solicitors and clients, and will continue to do so, appearing in hearings, Court appearances and conferences, via videolink or telephone.
Please continue to contact us as you normally would.
We suggest that if you intend to send hard copy briefs or material, call Chambers first to organise the best method of delivery to our Barristers.
At times when our switchboard is unattended, calls will be diverted to our Clerk, Fiona Hayden, however there may be the occasional delay answering your call. Fiona is available at all times though on email@example.com to answer any of your queries, provide available dates and take bookings.

State Chambers was founded in 1997 by Richard Burbidge QC and Richard Kenzie AM QC and was opened by the Hon. Gordon Samuels AC QC. Michael Cranitch SC is now Head of Chambers.
State Chambers is a modern, cutting-edge set of Chambers whose members have excelled in terms of qualifications and experience in a number of specialty practice areas.
The practice areas for which State Chambers is renowned include: Public law; Common law; Employment and Industrial Relations law; and Commercial law. Chambers also has a focus on Human Rights and has, as an Honorary Member, the first Federal Human Rights Commissioner for Australia, Professor Brian Burdekin AO.
State Chambers has had more members listed in both the 2017 and 2018 Leading Employment & WHS Counsel section of Doyle’s Guide than any other Chambers in Sydney.
A number of former members of State Chambers have been appointed to Federal and State courts and we have always had a significant proportion of leading silks and senior juniors on the floor.
Our members are often involved in high-profile, precedent-setting cases in their areas of expertise, as well as having significant expertise in trial and appellate work at all levels across a multiplicity of courts and tribunals. Many of our Barristers have extensive interstate and national practices and some also practice internationally, both in providing advice and appearing in international commercial arbitrations.
Any query regarding Chambers or any barrister may be directed, in the first instance, to the Clerk of Chambers, Ms. Fiona Hayden.
