Anna acts for both insurers and self insureds, including acting directly for a number of large corporations.

'There are many reasons why I enjoy my work. Particular highlights are the diversity of the matters I act in, the exposure to new and complex issues and the relationships that have been formed with colleagues and clients. I also enjoy the evolving nature of litigation and having the opportunity to think and act creatively to achieve good outcomes for my clients with whom I have worked to establish an ongoing relationship, so that they know they can rely on my advice.'
