I have 20 years’ experience and am a litigation specialist, having practiced in Australia and the UK in the areas of professional risks, public and products liability, personal injury, and sports, leisure & tourism.
I believe in settling claims in the best interests of my clients and avoiding protracted litigation so professionals can move forward with their careers and their lives without limitations.
I help clients find their way through the complexities of claims and litigations brought against professionals, as well as employment practices claims including unfair dismissal actions, workplace harassment and discrimination complaints. I also provide specialist insurance policy advice to underwriters.
I have expertise at handling claims brought against directors & officers in both the public and private sectors, associations and local government authorities throughout Queensland. I have considerable experience in conducting negotiations through mediation and other “out of court” dispute resolution processes.
