Will is a Senior Associate in our Insurance group. He has a high level of experience with respect to general insurance litigation, subrogated recovery actions, defending asbestos related personal injury claims, and providing advice to insurers in relation to indemnity issues.
Whilst his focus is often placed on dust disease (asbestos and silica) litigation matters, Will regularly assists clients to achieve both litigated and non-litigated recoveries relating to property damage, as well as business interruption losses arising from fires and floods to residential and commercial buildings. He has also acted in numerous defendant liability cases arising from asbestos exposure, involving contentious diagnoses and novel liability allegations.
Will has a similarly high-level of experience with respect to recovery and defended litigated matters involving damage to motor vehicles (including novel issues such collisions with livestock and inevitable accident defences), as well as investigations regarding potential fraudulent insurance claims. He regularly appears before the District and Supreme Courts of Queensland in litigated dust disease-related claims, and has on numerous occasions appeared before the Queensland Magistrates Courts to conduct motor vehicle accident trials and other insurance recovery matters.
Will ensures that he has a full understanding of his client’s business from the initial stages of the relationship, with this back-knowledge allowing him to effectively tailor his advice in-line with each client’s goals and overall business operations. As an advisor, Will appreciates the fact that his clients are often busy and prefers to be as direct and to-the-point as possible.
