Mr Robertson frequently appears as leading or sole counsel in final hearings (including appeals). He has appeared as leading or sole counsel in final hearings or appeals in the High Court of Australia, NSW Court of Appeal, the Supreme, District and Local Courts, the Federal (including Full Federal), Family and Federal Magistrates’ Courts of Australia, the Supreme and Magistrates’ Courts of Queensland and the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory amongst other courts and tribunals. Mr Robertson also appears in domestic and international arbitrations and has acted as sole counsel assisting the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption in public inquiries into allegations of corrupt conduct.
Mr Robertson is named in the Doyles Guide to the Australian Legal Profession as one of the four “preeminent” junior counsel for construction matters in Australia.
