Holly has been immersed in the insurance law sector for almost a decade, primarily specialising in workers compensation, where she defends claims against insurers, acting for both WorkCover Scheme Agents and self-insured clients.

EXPERIENCE & EXPERTISE

Holly is experienced in both in the statutory workers compensation scheme as well as common law (work injury damages) and recovery matters.

She conducts factual investigations, arranges medico-legal examinations and surveillance, reviews medical and factual evidence, advises on settlement strategies, instructs counsel and appears on behalf of clients at teleconferences and arbitrations.

In addition to handling disputes in the Workers Compensation Commission (both at an Arbitrator and Presidential level), Holly has frequently appeared at the Local, District and Supreme Courts of NSW as well as the NSW Industrial Relations Commission.

She has often acted as the point of contact for agency matters and been instructed to appear at pre-trial conferences, status conferences, directions hearings, infant approvals, coronial inquests and notices of motion.

Holly delivers training seminars to her clients on a wide range of issues across all areas of personal injury law, which she enjoys as it gives her the opportunity to share her knowledge and love of the law.

Admitted to practise in NSW, Holly joined our insurance law team in 2015.

Holly has strong expertise in avenues of alternate dispute resolution such as conferencing and mediation and is driven towards utilising all available resources to achieve efficient and favourable outcomes for her clients.
