As an insurance specialist with a deep understanding of industry issues I am able to bring both specialist knowledge and commerciality when dealing with insurance clients. I have advised leading Australian and international insurers and reinsurers on restructures, transfer schemes and complex disputes. I have also helped design and develop new insurance products.
Having managed litigation globally for a major international insurer, I can also identify the real issues upfront and develop a comprehensive strategy to quickly and effectively resolve disputes.
