Managing risk and defending professional indemnity claims
Our success has been witness to a number of landmark judgments and precedent-setting legal engagements.
With more than 40 years’ experience specialising in professional indemnity, and with an outstanding track record of successfully defended claims, our professional indemnity team is one of Australia’s most established and experienced professional indemnity practices.
Involved in an extensive range of cases in Australia and overseas, our recognised expertise helps us resolve difficult cases both litigated and pre-litigation efficiently and in a cost-effective way. We always look for the best way forward. Our aim is to resolve matters according to their true merits and, where possible, guide the process away from the pitfalls of protracted and expensive litigation. If we can resolve pre-litigation, we do.
