Immediation Practice Area: Expert Determination
I have 27 years' in insurance law, now coming up to my 20th year being a Partner. I founded Gilchrist Connell's Perth office in 2011. My main practice areas are professional indemnity, directors’ and officers' insurance, public liability, alternative dispute resolution and recoveries.
I handle disputes of many shapes and sizes, including those involving professionals and business people where things have taken an unexpected turn.
I was awarded the Lawyers Weekly Partner of the Year - Insurance in 2017 (for Australia) and the Best Lawyers Lawyer of the Year 2020 in Perth for the Professional Malpractice field (ie professional indemnity).
I love the part of dispute resolution where parties are able to accept an outcome and move on with their lives. It is a privilege to serve parties by enabling this to happen.
