For over a decade, Will has specialised in insurance law and now leads our WA-based operations in Perth. His passion for the sector has equipped him with skills to handle a diverse range of claims for key industry clients.
Will specialises in public, products and property damage claims with a particular focus on building, construction and mining-related disputes based in Western Australia. He has acted in multiple claims involving catastrophic injuries sustained at various mining operations and construction sites throughout Western Australia. Will also acts in environmental liability and toxic contamination claims.
In Perth, Will’s secondary area of practice focuses on large-scale and domestic subrogated recovery actions for many local and international insurers. This includes recovery actions arising from minor defective building and construction works to more complex recoveries arising from losses sustained due to breakdowns in large plant and equipment at various mining operations. He also advises clients on contractual indemnity, dual insurance and policy coverage issues.
Will regularly appears at mediations and in courtrooms in multiple jurisdictions representing local councils, manufacturers and occupiers. He presents educational seminars on personal and property damage claims topics directed to insurers and brokers based in Perth and on the East Coast. Will is also a current presiding member of the West Australian Football Commission (WAFL) Tribunal, a position he has held since 2017.
