     Robert Angyal SC
    Robert Angyal holds a 1971 Bachelor of Arts degree from Sydney University; a 1974 Bachelor of Laws with first-class honours from Sydney University Law School; and a 1975 Masters of Law from Yale Law School.

    Robert lived and worked overseas for 10 years and is admitted to practice in the United States. His most unusual qualification is that in 1979 he was the last lawyer admitted to practice in the Panama Canal Zone before it ceased to exist. There is no causal connection between these two things.

    A barrister since 1989, he has a general commercial and equity practice.  Robert took Silk in 2004 and has a broad civil practice encompassing retail leasing, real property generally, trade practices, contract, succession and insolvency.

    As well as practising as a barrister, Robert has been a pioneer in mediation at the Sydney Bar. Since 1991, he has mediated hundreds if not thousands of disputes in a broad range of areas and also represents clients at mediations.

    In 1987, Robert helped set up the Law Society’s ADR Committee, on which he served until 1995. He helped found the NSW Bar Association’s Mediation Committee in 1991, served on the Committee until 2008 and chaired it from 2000 to 2007. Robert returned to the Committee in 2010. He was a director of LEADR for 10 years.

    Robert has written and spoken widely about mediation and is writing a book for the Lawbook Company on representing clients at mediation.
