We have a long history of personal injury expertise. We are leaders in servicing statutory and general insurers and employers in Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland.
Our team is highly valued for their outstanding results, innovative approach and understanding of our clients’ business needs.
In NSW, we are on icare’s legal panel for both the Nominal Insurer (icare Workers Insurance) and Insurance for NSW.
We are recognised as leaders in the specialised area of recovery under the Vic, NSW, WA and Qld workers’ compensation schemes. Our recovery teams successfully recover several million dollars for our clients every year. We are currently looking at ways to identify and increase recovery for our clients in the future.
We see real opportunities for clients to benefit from our Smarter Law approach and investments, including the development of our Recovery Identification Application, which assists in the early identification of recovery files, and CLEAR, an app that helps self-insurers identify and manage common law claims. We have also developed sophisticated file status, tracking and outcome reporting to assist our clients to stay up-to-date on all matters.
Our statutory insurance teams have significant depth and size and deliver strategic, commercial and excellent service consistently.
A number of our senior lawyers are named in the Best Lawyers list and our insurance team is ranked in Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2019 and Chambers Asia Pacific 2020, which comments: ‘the team's high level of client service is emphasised by one client as an important strength: "They are incredibly client-focused, good at listening and responding to needs. They're flexible and offer many value-adds"'.
