Insurance

Contacts: James CudmoreAdam Rosser

We advise in relation to all types of insurance matters. We have a formidable reputation in resolving complicated disputes on behalf of insurers, underwriters and claims managers, as well as on behalf of insureds.

Our partners have long-standing reputations in the insurance industry.  This, coupled with our track record in resolving disputes, makes us a firm of choice for the insurance industry. 

We advise in relation to indemnity issues, policy drafting and other policy advice. 

We have acted in a wide range of professional indemnity matters both for and against major Australian and international insurers.  We have acted for architects, engineers, builders, manufacturers, brokers, property managers and real estate agents, accountants, security personnel and financial advisors.  Those claims have involved civil and commercial disputes, employment issues, defamation claims, disciplinary proceedings and statutory prosecutions. 

We are also experienced in advising on all forms of directors and officers (D&O) claims, having acted for insurers, companies and directors in relation to a myriad of such claims, including ASIC investigations. 

We have also acted for a leading medical malpractice insurer. 

The collegiate manner in which we operate also ensures that our clients have access to experienced practitioners practising in key areas where insurance claims may arise.

We have entered into panel arrangements with a number of major insurers.  We work closely with insurers to develop appropriate strategies for the management of each claim on a case-by-case basis, and always in accordance with the requirements of the insurer’s service standards.

We provide fast, effective and commercially pragmatic solutions to claims.  We consider that the cornerstone of cost effective legal services is to ensure that we have a full grasp of the circumstances of a claim at the earliest possible time, so that we can maintain a strategic advantage in managing the claim.
