‘I completed my law degree in Tasmania, left to gain experience interstate and overseas, only to realise I love home. I enjoy litigation and, more specifically, professional indemnity as it offers the opportunity to learn the intricacies of other professions... Barry Nilsson appealed to me because it offered a national solution to national issues.'

She acts for insurers, insureds, self-insureds, underwriters and brokers with a special focus on:

  • Construction (including architects, engineers, building surveyors and conveyancers)
  • Financial institutions (including accountants, financial planners and mortgage brokers)
  • Health care
  • Local government (including councillors and officers)
‘I am quick to identify issues and use this skill to focus resources on a commercial outcome. I understand the industry within which I operate and am keen to know more.’
