John Toohey Chambers

Fraser Robertson recently appeared before the High Court of Australia in Charisteas v Charisteas & Ors [2021] HCA 29. Fraser acted for the appellant husband. 

The High Court unanimously allowed an appeal from a judgment of the Full Court of the Family Court of Australia dismissing an appeal from the Family Court of Western Australia. The questions for determination were whether the Family Court's orders should be set aside on the ground of apprehended bias and whether the Family Court had power to make orders for the settlement of property under s 79 of the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth).

The members and staff of John Toohey Chambers congratulate Fraser for a job well done.
