In a statement, NSW Attorney-General Michael Daley outlined that Faulkner has acted for some of the largest law firms in Australia in professional negligence cases and specialises in insurance and reinsurance, both in courts and arbitration.

“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Tim Faulkner SC to the Supreme Court bench,” Daley said.


“Mr Faulkner is a highly experienced lawyer, and his knowledge will be invaluable to the court and everyone who interacts with it. I congratulate him on his well-deserved appointment.”

Faulkner will be a judge of the common law division of the state’s Supreme Court.

Admitted as a solicitor in 1990, he worked for King & Wood Mallesons in Sydney and Herbert Smith in London before he was called to the Bar in 1999. He took silk in 2014 and is currently a member of 12 Wentworth Selborne Chambers.

In 2020, he acted for corporate regulator ASIC in Australian Securities and Investments Commission v MLC Nominees Pty Ltd [2020], which resulted in a civil penalty of $57.5 million – “one of the largest civil penalties obtained by ASIC”, the A-G said.
