INSURANCE 
Our Practice

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

We have acted in disputes before the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) and have successfully 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 on insurance coverage if a claim is made against you.  We can liaise with your insurer and provide practical guidance to ensure that you are aware of and receive the protection of the full scope of your coverage and your ability to make a claim for all costs, including legal, arising from a professional negligence action.
