We know insurance law and understand business. Our skilled and dedicated insurance team works with insurers, self-insurers, government agencies and employers to provide strategic counsel and representation across the broad spectrum of insurance law, including:
- Workers compensation insurance – statutory compensation scheme claims, work injury (common law) damages claims
- Motor accident claims
- Catastrophic claims
- Recovery and control claims
- Life and disability insurance
- Public liability claims
- Professional indemnity
- General insurance
In an advisory capacity, we combine high-level technical knowledge with commercial acumen to deliver pragmatic advice and guidance. We prepare regular updates and work with clients to implement policies, training and processes that proactively respond to legislative changes and promote compliance.
As business partners, we interpret policies and unravel legalese to provide plain English advice on insurance cover, terms and conditions, staying abreast of industry developments to offer insight and make recommendations to reduce risk.
Understanding the intrusive and disruptive effect of workplace investigations and the potential gravity of their findings, we work with clients to ensure compliance at the highest level while protecting their legal rights.
At the representative level, our primary focus is the efficient resolution and cost-effective management of insurance claims. Embracing technology and meticulous file management, we provide consistent, quality outcomes. We foster negotiation, early intervention and alternate dispute resolution to achieve pragmatic solutions. When our clients require a strong litigator, we are relentless advocates, adept in a court room setting and comfortable in all jurisdictions including the Workers Compensation Commission, District, Supreme and Appellate Courts of New South Wales and the High Court of Australia.
