Daryl has extensive experience in all aspects of Insurance and enjoys a busy and varied practice defending multifaceted allegations of negligence. His Australian practice builds upon his experience overseas in crime, civil litigation, and the regulation of healthcare professionals. Daryl regularly advises on complex liability, quantum and strategic issues.
'I like to help clients resolve disputes expeditiously by taking the path of least resistance, while still robustly defending their position and protecting their interests.
Non-lawyers often mistake Insurance law for being uninteresting and somewhat dull. I have always found the opposite to be true, what interests me most about this area of law is the human factors at play.
'To be confronted with a complicated factual-matrix and distil that into coherent, cogent and commercial advice for a client is incredibly rewarding.'
Daryl regularly provides advice in relation to catastrophic claims for damages in negligence for death and bodily injury, litigation, risk management and legislative compliance. He is skilled at employing strategies to reduce the value of a claim and always strives to achieve a strategic settlement at the earliest opportunity.
Daryl also has experience in advising insurers and insureds on statutory insurance claims, which encompasses both workers' compensation and compulsory third party (CTP) insurance.
'Barry Nilsson is a national law firm with a reputation for excellence in the insurance and health industries. I had seen the Perth office grow rapidly in a small space of time and it was the obvious choice for me.'
Daryl was first admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales (2010), with a background in serious crime and fraud. Daryl then moved into the health care sector before moving to Australia in 2016.
Daryl is a member of the Law Society of WA and AILA.
