Jeremy Gordon is a barrister practising in Australia and in England and Wales, and he is able to offer legal advice either directly to lay clients, to solicitors, or to other professions.
Jeremy has practised continuously from his chambers in London since 1975 (in civil litigation, advising, and document drafting). In 2008 he was admitted as a lawyer in New South Wales.

Jeremy's Australian work is regulated by the Legal Profession Act 2007 (Qld) and by the profession's code of practice. Above the limit of insurance cover liability is limited by a scheme approved under the professional standards legislation.
Jeremy's UK work is regulated by the Bar Standards Board. See the Bar Standards Board barristers register which shows who has a current practising certificate and a barrister's disciplinary history.
