Dispute resolution

Within: Dispute resolution

Corrs Chambers Westgarth's ‘brilliant’ practice, led by James Whittaker, handles complex, high-value litigation and class actions, and regularly represents the government in contentious matters. It is acting for Trevor Flugge, the former head of the Australian Wheat Board (AWB), in civil penalty proceedings brought by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) against him, centred on allegations of payments by AWB to the Iraqi government in breach of UN sanctions. The team is also acting for Hancock Prospecting in its defence of claims brought by two children of Australian billionaire Gina Rinehart and two third parties. Names to note include Mark Wilks, Stan Lewis, Chris Pagent and Bronwyn Lincoln. The team has been bolstered by Felicity Healy from now-defunct Henry Davis York and Joshua Paffey from Norton Rose Fulbright.
