New appointment expands Hall & Wilcox’s NSW workers compensation capability


Hall & Wilcox has added further depth to its NSW workers compensation team with the appointment of Partner Tim Ainsworth.

Tim is an insurance lawyer with 20 years' experience in NSW statutory workers compensation. Tim acts for self-insured employers and employer’s insurers. He assists clients across a broad range of industries, including banking, transport, logistics, retail and insurance.

Hall & Wilcox Insurance National Practice Leader Rhett Slocombe said Tim would have an important role to play in the firm.

‘Our NSW workers compensation practice has had significant growth, due to the success of our self-insurance practice and our recent appointment to icare's legal panel. The team is busy and there are many opportunities. Tim will also add depth to the firm’s self-insurance practice nationally,’ he said.

Tim said, ‘I am excited to have the opportunity to work with the dynamic workers compensation team at Hall & Wilcox. Over the course of my career I have worked with, been hosted at industry events by, received instructions from, and acted in matters against, many of my new colleagues. I have nothing but respect for their client-focused competence, diligence and professionalism. I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and helping to build on the team’s successes.’
