Barry.Nilsson wins prestigious national insurance industry award

For the third time in four years, Barry.Nilsson. has been crowned Professional Services Firm of the Year in the 2019 ANZIIF Australian Insurance Industry Awards, after being nominated as a finalist since 2012.

In a closely contested category, Barry.Nilsson. beat a field of prestigious national nominees to win this year’s pre-eminent award for insurance firms.

Now in its 16th year, the ANZIIF awards recognise excellence and achievement by the top performing individuals and businesses in the industry.

The judges commended the firm for its investment in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and innovation technology to automate processes to become more efficient, productive and competitive in the national market.

“In the last few years, the legal profession has seen a seismic shift in the delivery of legal services,” said Andrew Price, Chief Operating Officer.

“It is vital that we understand where the future direction of the industry is headed. Recognising this, Barry.Nilsson. is at the forefront of new technologies with a dedicated team focused solely on incorporating innovation, particularly AI, to help cost-conscious clients overcome challenges and minimise costs to facilitate efficient claims resolution.”

Established in 1963, Barry.Nilsson. is a national law firm with a reputation for leadership in the areas of Insurance & Health, Family Law & Estate Planning, and Real Estate & Commercial.

Following an aggressive period of national expansion, the firm now has more than 300 lawyers and legal staff including 31 principals in offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart.

The judges also commended the firm for its commitment to “improving the professional standards of the industry and its significant investment in education, sponsorship and community initiatives.”

“This award recognises our clear strategy and high client satisfaction rating from our national client base,” said Rhett Kennedy, Principal and National Insurance Leader at Barry.Nilsson.

“Winning this award for the third time is testament to the investment we’ve made in encouraging a culture that supports building teams of outstanding lawyers who give us our competitive edge.

“Even though this is our third time on the podium for this award, this time is perhaps the sweetest, as it’s the first time winning the award as a truly national insurance practice.”

Barry.Nilsson.’s insurance practice spans all six national offices, with over 130 insurance lawyers, including 22 principals.
