Prior to joining BN, Angelo began his legal career at a mid-sized firm in Adelaide. He predominantly worked in compulsory third party insurance and represented a variety of insurers within the compulsory third party scheme. During this time, Angelo undertook a period of secondment with a major insurer where he worked directly with the client.
“I enjoy working in a wide scope of insurance law and at various stages in the progression of matters, whether that is shortly after a claim has been made or preparing for trial. Being involved in matters at various stages has been crucial in developing my ability to offer clients a cost-effective resolution.”
Angelo has experience representing claims managers and professional insureds. He has a particular interest in the litigation process, as well as the medical/health aspect of matters.
“I take the responsibility of working with professional insureds very seriously and recognise the importance of guiding them through matters where they generally face significant personal exposure.”
Angelo takes great pride in familiarising himself with all the details (big and small) involved in a matter, conducting a risk assessment and converting that awareness into clear legal advice and pragmatic decision-making.
“I was drawn to Barry Nilsson because of the diversity of work on offer and the opportunity to work alongside a highly respected team. Barry Nilsson has a reputation for their community-minded approach to the profession and I was extremely excited to grow my career within the culture of this firm.”
Angelo has a Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice and a Master of Laws. He is a member of the Law Society of South Australia and a committee member of the Young Lawyers’ Committee of the Law Society of South Australia.
