Lady Deborah Chambers QC has been a prominent member of the bar for some years, casting her elegant and stylish shadow upon a range of cases in the relationship property and trusts arena, as well as co-writing a handbook on domestic property law and a guide to trusts.
Her star rose with the marriage to the dashing and late Supreme Court Justice Sir Robert Chambers who died suddenly two years ago. Having accumulated the entitlement to “Lady Chambers”, a title she uses sparingly after her late husband was posthumously knighted, the 53 year old has continued to forge ahead with the legally important Clayton wrangle involving a $28 million fortune, but holding significant importance in terms of trusts and relationship property, involving issues as to ownership of a power of appointment.
Other cases in the trust and relationship property area, among others, have also shown the ability and sheer grit of a woman who was born of working class parents in a State house and risen to the top of the profession, earning respect and privilege, without forgetting her origins or sense of commitment to justice.
