Tony has acted solely for insurers since 1987 and has acquired an ability to quickly identify relevant issues and to develop strategies working with insurers to achieve strong commercial and economic resolution of matters.
Tony advises on a wide range of workers’ compensation, product, public and property liability claims for major insurers in Western Australia and nationally, as well as the Insurance Commission of WA. He aims to optimise claim outcomes and file duration, by providing advice on liability, quantum and future management of the claim, taking a commercial and pragmatic approach.
As a workers’ compensation practitioner, Tony has appeared in all Western Australian workers’ compensation and personal injuries jurisdictions in trials, numerous appeals and at both conciliation and arbitration applications.
Tony also has extensive knowledge and experience negotiating resolution of matters and he has a particular focus on successfully negotiating settlements of large property and general liability claims. His extensive experience and knowledge of property liability claims means he regularly develops very effective strategies to economically and expeditiously manage and resolve claims.
