Insurance and Risk

Our insurance practice provides a complete suite of services to our clients.

With experience and skills in transactional, corporate, compliance work and dispute resolution, we advise public and private corporations, insurers, and brokers.

From tailoring insurance...

We provide comprehensive advice to the insurance industry in relation to policy drafting, insurance design, corporate and regulatory matters, and claims handling.

Our insurance experts are known for their work in policy drafting and interpretation.  We developed Australia’s first series of technology insurance policies for a large American insurer and have drafted policies for international and Australian insurers across a diverse range of industries, including marine, heavy transport and car rentals.

... to tailoring advice

When it comes to managing your corporate risk, we believe it’s important to know your business and understand your industry to ensure your commercial objectives, as well as your obligations, are met.

Changing regulatory environments require anticipation as well as detailed knowledge. We design insurance programs for all business risks, considering policy coverage, indemnity and any deficiencies.  Clients can be assured that legislative compliance, including FSR obligations, APRA and the Insurance Contracts Act is comprehensive and timely.

We regularly review corporate insurance programs to ensure appropriate and adequate cover for each risk and we work with business to manage risk and structure insurance to achieve cost effective outcomes.  We also provide practical and tailored advice in relation to the insurance issues arising from mergers and acquisitions.

We make sure appropriate indemnity and insurance protection for company directors is in place and provide advice on workers’ compensation, self insurance options, business structuring, premium review and injury management.

We understand that insurance is about protecting your immediate as well as your long-term interests.

Should a dispute arise, we’re ready with appropriate and innovative dispute resolution strategies.

Our broad industry knowledge, covering manufacturing, transport and aviation, energy, mining and resources and agribusiness ensures advice is tailored to your unique situation and business entity.

Insurance - for the long-term.
