The Cooper Grace Ward Dispute Resolution team has again been ranked among the best practices in Australia in the 2022 rankings released by Chambers Asia Pacific and the Legal 500.

Following in-depth market research, client interviews and consideration of representative cases run by the team over the last 12 months, our team was ranked as a Band 5 leading firm in the 2022 Chambers Asia Pacific and Legal 500 rankings.

The Cooper Grace Ward Dispute Resolution team stands unique in the rankings dominated by international and top tier firms – being one of only a very small number of Queensland based independent teams to make the very select list.

Our team also received outstanding praise in the commentary – being acknowledged as a respected practice handling superior court litigation across the country and specifically known for a strategic and client focused approach.

Lead Dispute Resolution Partner Rocco Russo was listed as the highest ranked Queensland based litigator in the Chambers Asia Pacific rankings with a Band 4 ranking, with only one other Queensland based practitioner named in the international rankings this year. Rocco was described as ‘repeatedly acknowledged one of the best individual litigators in Brisbane’, ‘an excellent client communicator’, and ‘a hard fighter with a fearsome reputation as an opponent, but also a thoroughly commercial deal-maker.’
