Grant Mitchell
Partner, Adelaide
As leader of MinterEllison’s Insurance and Corporate Risk team in South Australia, I act on behalf of Australia’s largest insurers. I specialise in professional indemnity claims, directors’ and officers’ liability, and complex public and product liability matters.

My team and I have represented insurers, corporates, SMEs and NFPs, and their directors and officers, in South Australian and Commonwealth courts and tribunals in all manner of civil and commercial disputes and disciplinary proceedings, including representative actions (i.e. class actions) following catastrophic fires and design failures, significant construction disputes, claims against financial professionals involving large and complex financial transactions, as well as disciplinary matters against lawyers, architects, accountants, financiers and health professionals.
