At the Bar Charles has appeared for public, corporate, and Indigenous clients. Recent appearances include in the High Court and NSW Court of Appeal in a trust and equitable estoppel dispute, and in the Supreme Court of NSW in malicious prosecution proceedings for the State of NSW. Charles appears regularly in the Federal Court, and was recently led on appeal before the Full Court of the Federal Court involving the court's jurisdiction and powers in native title proceedings.
