Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Comcover: A large number of claims for compensation were raised, potentially amounting to several million dollars, due to the actions of a Government Department (through Comcover). Bronwyn worked closely with Comcover and the Department to ensure these claims were investigated and resolved as quickly as possible.

Government Agency: Bronwyn finalised the recovery of expense repairing damage exceeding $3 million to a leased building. In addition to assisting the Agency recover the expense from the insurer, Bronwyn also acted for the insurer to recover expenses from the landlord's insurer under the lease agreement. Recovery was successful to the value of $3.125M.

Private insurer: Bronwyn is currently acting on a claim from three claimants who were severely injured in an explosion at commercial premises in Canberra. The cause of the explosion and the role of the insured are both unclear.

Private insurer: Bronwyn acted in an NSW Supreme Court matter, regarding compensation damage caused to a building when a water pipe leaked allegedly due to negligent installation. Bronwyn had the matter resolved for considerably less than the total claim.
