COVID-19: Eleven Wentworth continues to operate.
Eleven Wentworth barristers continue to advise and represent their clients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our barristers are regularly appearing in courts, tribunals and alternative dispute resolution processes using video and telephone link facilities.
All barristers can be contacted on their chambers’ telephone numbers and email addresses, including to arrange telephone or video conferences or for deliveries of electronic or hard copy briefs. Phones continue to be answered and chambers can be accessed between 8am – 6pm on weekdays.
The Eleventh Floor has implemented new working arrangements to meet social distancing requirements, with barristers and staff working remotely where possible. These arrangements continue to be reviewed in line with government requirements and public health advice.
Please contact our clerk, Zach Rymer, for any questions related to our operations during this time on + 612 9232 7609 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
