Insurance

Our Practice 

We advise clients in relation to their dealings with insurance companies and insurance brokers, including advice in relation to disputes over insurance claims or advice in litigation matters where insurers are involved.

We have acted in disputes before the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) and have assisted clients who have had claims refused or have found themselves without the insurance coverage they thought they had.

Our team can also assist in advising about insurance coverage should a claim be made against you.  We can liaise with your insurer and provide practical guidance to ensure that you are aware of the scope of your coverage and your ability to make a claim for all costs, including legal, arising from a professional negligence action.
