‘I enjoy the variety of matters which present themselves in the context of insurance litigation. No two claims are alike, and each new matter that comes across my desk requires a fresh approach. I also enjoy the opportunity to work collaboratively with both my clients and colleagues, and collegiality between the various insurance professionals we deal with on a day to day basis.’

Jessica works with both insurers and self-insureds and has been instructed directly by a number of large corporations.

‘Barry Nilsson appealed to me because of its excellent reputation within the area of insurance law. I was also drawn to the fact that BN was an early adopter of flexible working arrangements (long before COVID-19), and to the professional and friendly firm culture.’
