Welcome to State Chambers




State Chambers was founded in 1997 by Richard Burbidge KC and Richard Kenzie AM KC and was opened by the Hon. Gordon Samuels AC KC.    

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.

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.‚Äč 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 Kirrillee Gardiner the Clerk of Chambers on clerk@statechambers.net.
