Insurance

Over the past 28 years our firm has earned a reputation for providing accurate, reliable, efficient, and cost effective workers’ compensation and insurance legal services.

We act for a large number of international and ASX listed corporations, government departments and statutory authorities, private companies, and insurance brokers. We are the longest serving member of the Victorian WorkCover Authority’s legal panel, and have one of Victoria’s largest self-insurer practices.

We also act for licensees and claims managers under the Commonwealth Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988.

Our team combines workers’ compensation with employment law and occupational health and safety expertise. This concentration of specialist knowledge, skills, and experience enables our team to manage the full range of injury, employment, and discrimination issues which can arise in the context of workers’ compensation claims, and to provide lateral and creative solutions to the difficult issues which can arise when managing injured employees.

Our insurance team has extensive experience in public liability, professional indemnity, product liability, contractor’s all risk, property and industrial special risk insurance, and self-insurance. We also have extensive experience in dust diseases, intentional torts arising out of child sex and physical abuse and bullying, commercial litigation, and building and construction litigation. Our insurance team also provides pre-contractual advice in relation to insurance policy wordings and contractual insurance and indemnity clauses, and acts in disputes arising out of denials of indemnity.
