Shane Doyle is a barrister with a large commercial practice covering a wide range of advisory work and appeal and trial work in all courts, in arbitrations and in various commissions. He practices from Level Twenty Seven Chambers (Brisbane), 5th Floor Selborne Chambers (Sydney) and Essex Court Chambers (London).

He undertakes work in hearings under domestic arbitration rules (including ACICA, CIArb, IAMA rules) and is also experienced in appearing in international matters governed by ICC rules (including ad hoc arbitrations and matters where the seat of the arbitration is outside Australia). His arbitration practice includes matters relating to public and private international issues, commodities, price setting for gas supplies, access to infrastructure, energy projects (in particular LNG pipelines and facilities, offshore oil and gas extraction) as well as other general contractual matters. Shane also accepts instructions as arbitrator.

In court, his practice covers the range of commercial disputes embraced in his arbitration practice but in addition he has appeared as counsel in many leading cases across the full ambit of commercial litigation and dispute resolution, including insurance; general contractual litigation; banking; corporate disputes including oppression proceedings, claims for director’s breach of fiduciary duties and majority/minority shareholder disputes; and professional negligence.

He is regularly instructed in matters dealing with regulatory price settings for gas and electricity and access to utilities infrastructure.

 Shane is a former president of the Bar Association of Queensland.

WWL says: Shane Doyle QC is highly recommended for his extensive commercial practice and is widely recognised as one of the leading arbitration barristers in the country.
